Favorite part: watch the ramper at the beltloader, bottom left. Has NO reaction when they hit, then moves forward with a “thumbs up.”

I think everybody is pretty familiar with the Asiana 777 in SFO. You might not be familiar with the Asiana A-320 that landed in Hiroshima several months later on an RNAV GPS approach - short - in the approach lights, skidded onto the runway and then off the runway. Ability to transition from an instrument procedure to a visual landing, or just a pure visual approach seems a bit problematic. Their ground operations and knowledge of aircraft size also seems less than optimal. In about 1998 (google ANC taxi incident with an IL62 Aeroflot aircraft), an Asiana 747-400 taxiing [too fast] struck the Aeroflot aircraft. Instead of immediately stopping, the Asiana -400 attempted to taxi on through. The IL-62 was destroyed. The most recent Asiana taxiing incident shouldn't be a surprise to anybody in aviation.
