    LOL. There is that old aviation saying, "Flying is the second greatest thrill known to man. Landing is the first."

    It's not a cargo plane.

    A crash that occurs after touchdown typically isn't a total loss. Fewer troubles with Newton. The fueselage appears to be mostly intact, so that's a good sign.

    As for a tail falling off, a bad impact could snap the tail loose. I'm guessing the tail came off during impact, not during flight. If the tail comes off in flight, things don't go this well. The 777 tail is mostly composites. They're tough and light, but as I understand it when they do fail, they tend to fail rather spectacularly.

    From the LA Times:

    San Francisco International Airport was closed after a Boeing 777 operated by Asiana Airlines crashed while landing on Saturday.

    ...In a brief phone interview, a passenger from the flight who didn’t want to give his name told the Los Angeles Times that most of the passengers on the flight were unharmed.

    “I just want their families to know,” he said. “Most of the people seem OK and we’re just letting the paramedics do their job.” Asiana Airlines crash: Passengers taken to hospitals, SFO closed - latimes.com

    I've been involved with three "unscheduled landings" on military aircraft. No one was hurt bad in any of them though. The worst one I was in was a UH-60 in Mogadishu when we added some unexpected lead to the engine and had to auto-rotate down in the city. Not fun. You may have read about it or saw a movie that talked about it. My avatar picture was taken in the same UH-60 a couple days earlier.

    I was also on a Delta L1011 flying from ATL to HNL when we lost cabin pressure over the Pacific. The masks deployed and a pre-recorded message started YELLING at us to put the masks on and breath normally. Yeah, right.

    It is tough to breathe normally under those circumstances. Don't worry about getting high from the oxygen, though. Fight Club was full of ****!

    I'm thinking the pilot was just short of the runway and the tail was clipped off by the rock wall.

    The runway 28 approach is over freaking water.

    edit: oh, that little thing at the edge of the water? It's not very tall...

    Probably more likely the landing gear is what got tangled up in the rocks since at least one of them is ripped completely off and laying on the around the runway numbers. They would have to have that nose up pretty high to drag the tail me would think.
