A federal aviation official says an Asiana Airlines flight has crashed while landing at San Francisco airport. Two people have been confirmed dead, 61 others injured.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the Boeing 777 crashed at San Francisco Airport while landing on Saturday.
According to KTVU, the tail of the plane reportedly came off while it was touching down on the runway.
A witness says the landing gear had already come down. The plane reportedly wobbled for a minute then appeared to flip upside down and eventually came to a stop.
A video clip posted to Youtube shows smoke coming from a silver-colored jet on the tarmac. Passengers could be seen jumping down the inflatable emergency slides.
The airline is based in Seoul, South Korea. Its website says its Boeing 777 can carry between 246 to 300 passengers.
