SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Federal investigators say they found parts of the Asiana airlines plane that crashed at San Francisco International in the waters of San Francisco Bay.

National Transportation Safety Board chairwoman Deborah Hersman says the lower portion of the plane’s tail cone was found in rocks inside a seawall.

A “significant piece” of the tail of the aircraft was in the water, and other plane parts were visible at low tide.

She says other debris from the seawall was found several hundred feet up the runway.

The plane crashed on Saturday, killing two people and sending more than 180 to hospitals.

Hersman says investigators plan to interview the plane’s pilot on Monday. She says the pilot was experienced flying other planes but was working to get his rating on the Boeing 777.
