Boeing 777 crashes while landing at San Francisco airport

A Boeing 777 operated by Asiana Airlines crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, according to Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Lynn Lunsford.

The airplane was coming in from Seoul, South Korea and apparently crashed sometime after touching down on Runway 28. The airline's website states that the Boeing 777 can carry between 246 to 300 passengers.

Video footage captured at the scene of the crash appeared to show passengers sliding down emergency chutes as plumes of smoke billowed from the aircraft.

It was unclear if there were any injuries as a result of the crash.

No other details were immediately available.

This is a developing story.

SAN FRANCISCO — An Asiana Airlines flight crashed as it was landing at San Francisco airport on Saturday, a federal aviation official said. It wasn't immediately known if there were any injuries.


Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown says the plane was coming from South Korea and was supposed to land on runway 28 left at San Francisco International Airport. She said the sequence of events was still unclear, but it appeared the plane landed and then crashed.

A video clip posted to YouTube showed smoke coming from a silver-colored jet on the tarmac. Passengers could be seen jumping down the inflatable emergency slides.

Live TV images showed extensive fire damage to the airplane, which had lost its tail and one of its wings in the crash. Fire engines were on scene and the fire, which had burned through the cabin's roof, appeared to be out.

The airline is based in Seoul, South Korea. Its website says its Boeing 777 can carry between 246 to 300 passengers.

Information from Press and Tv is included in this report.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
