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.

From the video and pictures available the plane is clearly upright and not on its back.

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.

I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I’m ok. Surreal...

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!

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

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.

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

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.
