NTSB: Pilot's call to abort landing one second before crash

Investigators are looking into claims that the pilot of Asiana Flight 214 was blinded by a light, seconds before he crashed at San Francisco's International Airport.

According to investigators the pilot says that at about 500 feet - a flash of bright light temporarily blinded him.

NTSB chief: 'There are 2 pilots in the cockpit for a reason'

But according to investigators – it's still unclear if that played a role in the crash.

OutFront tonight: Keith Wolzinger a 777 pilot.
