    PLANE CRASH Landing San Francisco - Just Now

    4:00 pm EST: No word on causalities.

    "BOEING 777 CRASHES

    Parts of roof charred, ripped off

    Plane was landing in San Francisco
    "

    "You immediately saw a large, brief fireball," one witness says of Flight 214, which was en route from Seoul, South Korea. On the runway, evacuation slides could be seen on one side of the aircraft. FULL STORY"

    My guess is loss of power in one or both engines, pilots pulled nosed up in hopes of making runway, tail strikes ground and plane dumps into the ground.

    EDIT: Just saw a pic on FOX. It looks like the pilot landed WAAAY short. Tail might have hit the water and jetty which knocked it off.

    Any news on causalities? - from the photo that plane was really burned, though one side wasn't bad.

    On second thought, I just saw another photo and a shot on a live feed from video. I think it showed partial inside of cabin. Don't see how there could not be injuries or worse... Pray I'm wrong.

    Fox News is saying it struck a sea wall just before the runway. Also says "passengers appear to be safe".

    That would be a miracle - must have been a great crew that evacuated so fast! Look of that plane not a second to lose getting passengers off...

    One of my worst nightmares ever. Looking at the wreck, it's a miracle that anyone got off alive. I hope the causality list doesn't go higher.

    The drive to the airport is many orders of magnitude more dangerous than the flight is.

    You got that right. But there's something about a metal tube flying through the sky, and my lack of understanding about the physics of flight, that make me always uneasy when taking off and landing.

    I always feel a great sense of peace and calm when I sit down in my seat (until somebody's baby starts crying, kicking the back of my seat, etc.) because if I know if anything goes wrong, it should be over pretty quickly.

    Unless it's like this crash in my hometown where the victims survived the initial impact but then couldn't get out of the plane and burned to death.

    Yeah but not soon enough for me. Whenever we fly I always watch my husband out of the corner of my eye (he's a pilot). If he starts gripping the arm rest I'm going to start screaming...just to let others know how the flight's going.

    I always pretend, in my mind, that they died of smoke inhalation before the flames got to them because the alternative is too horrific.
