The documentation of the wreckage which used to take investigators several days, can be done now in just a very few hours with modern cameras and video equipment.
SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KGO) -- Overnight, thick smoke could be seen from site of the Asiana Airlines plane wreckage at San Francisco International Airport. The thick white smoke could be seen as crews worked to move debris from the plane. ABC7 News is now being told there was no fire, just heavy smoke caused by metal friction as crews cut the plane into smaller pieces.
Earlier this week an SFO spokesperson discussed that hazards crews would face in the cleanup. "We expect that there is going to be a lot of hazardous materials, jet fuel and hydraulic fluid that needs to be cleaned up in the area," said SFO Spokesperson Doug Yakel.
The fuselage of the plane was removed from the runway and work has started on repaving the runways and fixing the light system damaged in the crash.
