Yes..I was quoting the TV about it flipping..Fox still saying it.
Here is a photo of the plane..someone on twitter who was on board took it:
Looks fairly survivable and hopefully so.
Great pic here taken by someone who got off the plane.
Once again, Twitter, Free Republic, etc., have been first with breaking news and have have caught MSM flat-footed.
Upon landing, it appears the tail just fell off.
Could have flipped. No question about it. Just it's right side up now. Doesn't mean it didn't flip an integer number of revolutions.
See the link to a passenger pic I just posted. The aircraft is definitely on its belly.
Definitely showing right-side up at that link you posted.
From the video and pictures available the plane is clearly upright and not on its back.
Yeah the plane is NOT on its back
I'm not wearing pajamas! Nuts. No, I mean... never mind.
Dang! You are GOOD! ha.
I just gave a local Sheriff-—Very conservative, Catholic guy— the Freepr website today!!!
we will now hopefully have LEA back up here in Jax, Fl for future Freepathons...ha. ha.
There will be casualties due to smoke inhalation ... but i have seen fully engulfed planes. This one will be survivable for some.
Camera phones combined with a Twitter account are amazing. One of these days, some average Joe is going to win a Pulitzer Prize just for being in the right place at the right time to capture a dramatic picture.
Yes, I saw that story too. Did an emergency diversion, they sent a 747 to pick up the passengers. Somewhere in Asia IIRC.
Thanks for posting. I have never been good at posting pictures on this site so I appreciate you posting it for me :-)
I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I’m ok. Surreal...

SFFD says 45 units on scene - have passengers AND VICTIMS so there are injuries
Upon landing, it appears the tail just fell off. Wits now saying this thing started to cartwheel upon landing, tearing a wing off then the tail...
I quit flying several years ago. I simply got tired of being groped by people I did not know who wanted to play with my privates for whatever reason to see if I was carrying an artillery shell in my shorts or something. I hate airports. I hate flying. I hate the fools that grope everyone for their funny time. If I can’t drive there, I ain’t going!
Thank you, sir!
Heard of it from a friend who’s in SF.
That was one hard landing. Heavy jets don’t have skid capable tail sections. They snap and buckle the fuselage. That’s why jets don’t flare for a landing. You just sort of fly them in a straight attitude while on a steady rate of descent and they mmet the runway at some point if you’re on glide slope.

twitter has its whackos but for the most part its pretty darn good..with any kind of social media(Facebook, twitter, etc) your gonna have the haters, the leftist jerks, but for the most part twitter has been a very reliable source of information. Twitter was the place I found out about the fireworks accident in Simi Valley, called my cousin to find out that my cousins had been at the event and were uninjured, it hadnt even been reported in the local media yet..so yes, with social media, you take the good with the bad
Great pic. Looks like the person in teal green shirt is hauling carry on luggage.
SFFD: not aware of fatalities KTVU says some burned
If there are no fatalities, I’d be surprised...
They’re damn lucky that tail didnt fall off at 30,000 ft.
I still regret not having bought a Pajama Patrol badge.
Once again, FR is a LEADING NEWS SOURCE. Kudos
I wonder where the tail is? I’ve flown in and out of SFO gazzillions of times.
There is a long water approach and bingo, you are on the run way.
from the lady that called KTVU, tail hit upon landing
The aircraft according to wits started cartwheeling down the runway...
No fatalities? Hard to believe...
I had to go to Israel last year for my sisters wedding. I absolutely HATE flying..not only because I fear the plane crashing, but because for some reason I have to go to the bathroom 20 times during the flight LOL..turbulence was bad, especially going over Turkey and also over the mountains of Canada..I tell ya, I was a nervous wreck, and I had a window seat, I never looked out the window, I didnt want to know, didnt want to see anything. Some people are used to flying so they know what the bumps mean, I prefer driving, Id rather take my chances on solid ground than in the air
‘Cept the wings are still on it...
The tail busted off when the aircraft started cartwheeling...Busting off a wing during the process...
According to witnesses...
Have the officials made the cursory “not a terrorist incident” yet?
2/3 of body burned down to half way - hope plane was evacuated before the fire
Close up of the plane
I love the guy off to the far left edge taking a pic. Probably one of the passengers. Too Weird.
Wasn’t there another 777 last week that had an emergency landing elsewhere?
You’re right, but witnesses said a wingtip struck the runway which caused the aircraft to cartwheel, busting off the tail.
The right side of the plane is in terrible shape, all torn up and burned. ABC is showing these images right now.
