    Video definitely shows emergency slides deployed so I'd expect at least some survivors. Just heard 291 souls on board.

    OMG. This just happened about an hour ago . . . it's difficult to believe the triage area would be free of ambulances and victims on the ground. It looks like there are three or four of them right now. If there were 291 people on board . . . OMG.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Video looks like the plane just landed short and took the tail off.

    From the live video feed, it looks like the rear of the plane hit the rock wall at the end of the runway since there are lots of pieces of the tail broken apart and scattered around the end of the runway.

    Based on the CNN live feed it seems like maybe they may have landed too short on the displaced threshhold and ripped the land gear off/lost control on the ground.

    Well, I don't want to speculate too much but one of the reporters at the airport just said that he spoke to a guy whose wife was on the plane and, according to her(through the reporter), she thinks everyone got off without major injuries. Here's hoping!

    Yep and one of the gear struts laying not too far down the runway with a skid/slid mark behind it.
