As officials try to piece together what led to the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash Saturday at San Francisco International Airport, investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board will analyze air-traffic control records, weather, aircraft maintenance and the crew’s actions from data recorders aboard the plane.

A team of federal safety investigators headed for San Francisco on Saturday, where they will focus on flight operations, human performance, survival factors and the aircraft, including its power plants. The investigator in charge will be Bill English.

“Everything is on the table at this point,” said Deborah Hersman, chairman of the NTSB and the member who is traveling to the accident site.
