Boeing 777 crashes while landing at SFO | www.ktvu.com


A plane crashed while landing at San Francisco International Airport Saturday morning after its tail came off while it was touching down on the runway.
According to a witness, around 11:20 a.m. the plane was just about to land -- its landing gear had come down -- when the tail of the plane came off.
After wobbling for a minute, the aircraft flipped upside down, coming to a stop on runway on it's back.

Only the second 777 hull loss; hopefully still non-fatal.

I wonder did a heavy landing turn into a crash landing. Serious impact for the tail to snap. Lets hope there are no fatalities.

EYEWITNESS TO @KTVU: The plane "started violently shaking" after it hit the runway at San Francisco airport, and then "rolled over"
tail broke off when it crashed

Admiral, I was thinking the same, a MD-80 at Edwards AFB, CA. No flap landing by a FAA evaluator.

Showing the tail now, there's a debris field from the beginning of the tarmac, just at the sea, dragging onto the runway and the touchdown zone. Maybe undershoot.

This Photo: https://path.com/p/1lwrZb seems to show the fire started relatively slowly and does not seem to include the fuselage when passengers were escaping. Hopeful for a low casualty count.

Edit: Fire services suggesting no deaths, but some reports of burns.
