The story broke about 10 minutes ago, so it's still going on. On report says people are trapped and the plane is on fire. The flight was operated by Asiana out of Taipei. The plane was landing, when the accident occurred. A third alarm has been sent out for additional fire fighting units to assist, and ambulances have been sent. The airport is currently closed. Witnesses said it was at "an odd angle" on approach.

It's got no tail by the looks of it, apparently someone tweeted saying everyone is safe which is good news.

Because planes have not crashed since they were first engineered?

Multiple sources and tweets just came out with the following, whether or not it's true remains to be seen.

Right ..you know it was caused by maintenance how?
Mechanical things break.
Computers break.
Networks break.
People break..
Just because an accident occurs doesn't mean it was something nefarious vs something random.
I think we really need to wait for the NTSB to get involved and determine what happened before we assume anything.

Not seeing any reports of casualties, thank goodness.

They are thinking the plane touched down short and drug the tail which knocked it off.

If this is another example of poor construction or design, thing aren't looking good for Boeing, are they?

I don't recall any large incidents with the 777 hopefully everyone will be ok , over 300 on board though, hopefully no-one was sat near "the split"

By hystorical data of the same type of accidents.

"same type of accident"

The only thing known for sure right now is it was a 777. Their are multiple reasons why that type of plane has crashed over history.

I just don't understand people jumping to any conclusion before the facts are known. Right now I am glad that all indications are that no one was killed beyond that, their needs to be more info,.
