That's strange. They usually change the number of the flight after a major accident, so as not to remind their passengers.

Also, note how the new plane is just touching down at the point where the other plane came to rest after crashing and skidding for hundreds of feet. That's how short they were of the proper touchdown spot.

Yeah, they didn't BARELY miss, it's a wonder anyone survived.  I think I read they were going 104 knots, that's WAY too slow for a heavy.  Bad cockpit management, total pilot error on BOTH of them.

Still a better overall experience for those passengers than flying Spirit.

(Subby's still pissed it took 2 hours, same as the flight duration from Dallas to Vegas, to get our checked luggage ON BOTH LEGS OF THE ROUND TRIP)

That photo is freaking perfect. I don't know how long the photographer had to wait for that shot, but he nailed it.

Yeah, I'm surprised they didn't change the flight number.  That is SOP after a crash.

Standard glide slope puts the touch down area 1000ft down the runway, and 28L has a displaced threshold so they were about 2000ft short.

Really, what are the chances that the same flight number on the same airline going to the same airport will crash twice? I bet both the pilot and co-pilot on the flight after had thousands of hours flying a 777.

I'm sorta wondering if it will come out (as some in earlier threads have suggested) that the "deputy" pilot, who had 3,000+ hours of 777 flight time was simply too timid, due to cultural factors, to suggest to the pilot that he wasn't flying fast enough.

As compared to the previous landing of flight 214, where at one point passengers had a great view of Oakland out the left side of the plane

I imagine there's a little room for error on a runway at a major international airport.   I doubt there's a certain mark you have to hit in order to make a safe landing.

A couple of other points about this crash.  It's amazing that there were only 2 deaths out of more than 300 people and that one of those may have actually been caused by rescue crews.

Airplane crashes aren't supposed to happen, but if they do, this is how they're supposed to happen.

I also looked up the cost of a 777.  It's not like Boeing provides a price list, but various sources on the internet put it at somewhere between $200 and $285 million.  That's pretty expensive.  I guess the airline doesn't want to sound like a dick mentioning the fact that they lost an asset worth somewhere around a quarter billion dollars, but that - along with the inevitable lawsuits is going to be very expensive for them.

So in the NTSB briefing just a bit ago, it was revealed that the trainer pilot was on his first flight as a certified trainer. Something tells me he won't have a second.

There is some room for error, but not much.  The touch down zone is 1000ft from the end of the runway to leave some buffer for coming up a bit short, but these guys were way short.

Even though the runways are 200ft wide, the main gear on a heavy jet is ~60ft wide.  Get the engines too close to the edge and they'll suck up debris.  This is why the outboard engines on the A380 don't have thrust reversers, they stick so far out that they FOD out.

These guys were actually lucky their lateral position was off, since it allowed them to miss the approach lights.  If they had hit the approach lights, the passengers and flight attendants that fell out on the runway would have likely ended up in the bay.
