The National Transportation Safety Board is looking at the flight crew's inputs into the autopilot and other cockpit automation systems during Asiana Flight 214's final minutes. The crew told investigators they believed the autothrottles were on, which would have relieved them of managing the plane?s speed, and left them with only its altitude and course to manage among other minor settings but experts said some of the instructions that the crew gave the autopilot may have disabled the auto-throttles.
