WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) on Tuesday cited "mismanagement" in the cockpit as the probable cause of last July's crash of Asiana Flight 214 in San Francisco.

At a hearing in Washington, the federal agency cited a number of underlying factors, from insufficient training to the pilots' failure to correctly manage air speed during final approach to landing.
