"Boeing 777 Crash Lands At San Francisco International Airport"
A Boeing 777 airplane originating in Seoul, South Korea crash landed on the runway of San Francisco International Airport just around noon local time after the tail of the plane was ripped from the aircraft, according to eyewitnesses.
David Eun, a high level executive at Samsung, was a passenger on the flight, which was operated by Asiana Airlines, and posted an incredible photo of the wreckage and of fleeing passengers on his Path, another social media site.
Eyewitnesses initially reported the plane ended up on its back after flipping over on landing, though photographs from the scene seem to refute those claims. Emergency vehicles reported to the scene, but early indications from people on the ground suggest the number of casualties could be lower than was first feared.
All planes scheduled to land at the airport are being diverted to other area airports, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
