Asiana B-777 Reported Down At KSFO

Recommended Posts

Clearest picture I've found of the situation.

It looks as though the fuselage fire has only just happened by the looks of this picture.

 

I hope everybody got out in time! Hopefully there aren't any severe injuries!

Watching it live right now.. The entire fuselage is burned out, tail is also gone. Apparently someone was plane watching when it happened, from what he described, it sounded like a blown tire and a subsequent loss of control on landing.

There is no way this aircraft flipped after landing. The fuselage is intact and wings are still on the bird. Hopefully there's no fatalities as the fuselage is pretty much intact. This reminds me of what happened with a BA777 at Heathrow.

Yup, and the strike on the actual rock berm at the edge.

Not so kemosabe. This is Asiana's third 777 crash; one of them a cargo derivative.

You are right,

 

I should have said that there has not been any onboard loss of life before now Here is how Wikipedia puts it.

 

Quote:

 

The airliner has been involved in two hull-loss accidents, with no on-board fatalities, as of May 2013. It is rated the safest aircraft based on its accident safety record and high number of flight hours.

 

Unquote

 

I am praying that it remains so.

Small nuance... no one has said that there hasn't been casualties. The report was 303 souls on-board, all accounted for. Which is not the same as saying 303 souls on-board, all alive (or safe, or living). The FAA is withholding information on that detail at the moment.

Just to be sure, it's not an official source. According to another tweet, the info is based on radio traffic and EMS reports.

 

Thanks for that.. Sometimes hard to know what is legit or not on twitter as not even some official things are given the twitter seal of approval as being "verified".

Youre right. Thanks for clearing it up. In that case, I hope everyone is accounted for and alive.

The media is leaning quickly at Pilot error.

 

Don't they always?

I hope everyone is ok.
