The pilot of a South Korean airliner that crashed in San Francisco in July felt "very stressful" about touching down with no instrument landing system to guide him, according to documents made public Wednesday. Three passengers died when Asiana Airlines Flight 214 clipped a seawall with its landing gear, skidded off the runway and burst into flames at the tragic end of an otherwise routine flight from Seoul on July 6.
