Skip to comments.KTVU Flight 214 Epic Fail (reports pilots names Sum Ting Wong, Wi...)
Posted on 07/12/2013 3:04:40 PM PDT by GSWarrior
Bay Area news station KTVU just reported that the pilots of Asiana's disastrous flight 214 were the crack team of "Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk," and "Bang Ding Ow."
Despite the names obviously being just a bunch of racist jokes, KTVU, which has since apologized for the report, claims in a statement given to Gawkerand read on the airthat an NTSB official confirmed the names to them earlier today.
EARLIER IN THE NEWSCAST WE GAVE SOME NAMES OF PILOTS INVOLVED IN THE ASIANA AIRLINES CRASH. THESE NAMES WERE NOT ACCURATE DESPITE AN N-T-S-B OFFICIAL IN WASHINGTON CONFIRMING THEM LATE THIS MORNING. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THIS ERROR.
Update: NTSB Public Affairs Officer Peter Knudson just media that the NTSB's policy is to never give out pilot names in these situations, which contradicts KTVU's claims. "I dont know who [KTVU] got that from, but we do not release names," he said.
This is not satire. Station has already issued apology.
“This is Ben Dover reporting...now back to Anita Beer in our studio...”
This station has been below water talent&news wise for a long time, the liebral&green bias is obvious. I like a couple of the weather folks, that’s about it.
Oops, I watch KTVU 10:OO news everynight.
Major fail here!
You just can’t make this stuff up! But somebody did...
If I was getting on board that plane, and saw the duty roster, I think I’d get back off, ASAP.
The flight engineer was Too Hung Hi and the chief flight attendant was Wang Gang Bang.
They blamed it on the NTSB.
This is terrible.
And I can’t stop laughing.
True story, my husband once video-taped a wedding for Bich Ngoc and Hung Cok. :-)
HILARIOUS!!!! I have been in contact with the REAL pilot, and his name is ‘Dum Azz Me Dee Ah’.
Ron Burgundy will read everything on teleprompter
National Teleprompter Slapstick Board
What a great commentary on the weight given to “accuracy” by today’s media.
I think that was Ron’s sister reading that report, Ronnetta.
Was the first person to say something recorded by the black box, I believe.
“Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk
***Obviously wrong. Supposed to be “Wi Tu Ro” and “Ho Ree Fuk”.
All who want to see Mike Hunt, pick up the white courtesy phone.
That was retarted, sir.
Too damn funny, best of the year so far...........
Don’t forget Hugh G. Rekshin!
This was reported by Won Hung Lo, confirmed by producers Willie Makit, and Betty Dont.
They will soon be paying their lawyer to defend them, Mr. M.T. Wallet.
Well, if the first tart is gone, it's good to have another standing by...
I thought the chief flight attendant was Sum Dum Ho.
“I thought the chief flight attendant was Sum Dum Ho.”
No, that’s the lady was was reading the news.
In the same vein.....Hugh Jorgen.
Those Asians and their anime icons! The third icon is not appear to be the right way to handle a child.
I hope this is real, I just emailed it out, I hope this isn’t my first gotcha on myself.
Never mind, on another thread I saw that the station has already acknowledged it, so this looks authentic, thank God, since I really dislike unverified emails that turn out fake.
This newscast will live in Infamy.

You forgot the porno star, “Long Dong Hong”
What I find funny (or pathetic) is the idiot talking head that just read the names off without even a hint that, indeed, “sum ting” was in fact “wong” with the names.
“...You forgot the porno star, Long Dong Hong...”
and his cousins Wang Hung Lo and Sum Yung Giy
Now that is funny!
Here till Tuesday! Try the Veal!!
And the half brother, Suk Mi Dong.
Bart Simpson must have gotten a hold of the teleprompter. LOL
stop it LOL
Yak Mi Goo??
What I like about the original list is that all the names describe a plane that is going down, and then crashes. #3, Ho Lee Fuk, reminds me of what I have heard are the most common last words before a crash, "Oh Sh**!" Same kind of expression.
I'll bet that news station, which the airline is suing, will either
1) Create a new policy that requires several people to review scripts before going on the air, or
2) (If they already have such a policy) Hand out a stern warning that everybody will do it or else...
