Boeing 777 Crashes in San Francisco

Amateur plane spotter Fred Hayes actually filmed the crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214, in a video exclusively obtained by CNN, which killed two people yesterday at San Francisco International Airport. 06/07/2013 - Boeing 777 Crash Lands at SF Airport | 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. The plane, reportedly a Boeing 777, was coming from South Korea, according to flight tracking information.

    OMG. I guess that's all the guy could say. according to the TSA this was a pilot error? the guy has over 10,500 hours in the air. the plane is fairly new to him but I think we have another Failure in parts or fuselage. What does surprise me is that the new rules a pilot or co-pilot only needs about 250 hours of flight time to fly one of these mammoth high capacity airliners. I got that from the news so how accurate it is....well look it up. Apparently so far only two people have been reported lost in this horrific crash as you can see. A lot of fire was in the cabin and they say it took the crew 90 seconds to start evacuation. Well 90 seconds after that isn't bad in my book. Just think how the crew must have been? Then the screaming of passengers. It must not have been an easy task, Although their job but 90 seconds. I would be thankful. I hope no other souls were lost at this point. And I will bet that it was not Pilot error but another troubled tail wing problem as they have had so many in the past. Like the screw that makes the tail Rutter go up and down had failed on many planes.
