One report saying 1 body was found in the water by uscg. That was unofficial report.
The 777 has an auto land feature........looks an awful lot like a failure.
Glide slope was drastically incorrect
Hope everyone is ok.
On a lighter note, let me cover the future posts of GT conspiracists.
Obviously, it flew from Korean airspace without a tail and the left engine. The event was staged to cover this up. Obama staged this after learning that a North Korean Mig shot off the engine and tail in order to start the next Korean War. The even had the Illuminati apparatchik on board ( present on all commercial flights ) to ignite the cabin with thermite charges after landing to destroy any iPads with evidence of the Mig.
Watching the NTSB press conference. Did the PIO really just use the phrase, "Hit the ground running"?
Airport FD does not get alot of real world experience, they train, and train. Met the head of the FSO FD a ways back, first class outfit. I'm sure they saved lives.
Don't forget the N.S.A. generated holograms...
Dotter works 777s and wondered the same thing, cuz the tail broke off and she works in the far aft galley.
I showed her a pix with the aft bulkhead intact, so the break didn't involve occupied areas.
Second loss of a 777 hull. First was a crash at Heathrow.
GS for 28L and 28R was OTS today.
Cat II and Cat III auto land are not usually perform on clear days.
Maybe that pilot shouldve ...
The CW film clip is a helicopter shot that shows a ramp strike on the seawall, and an immediate debris trail.
Peolsi or Feinstein onboard????
A lot of crazy speculation here. It looks like the pilot fell short of the runway, also off center of the runway... whether it was pilot error or some weather factor (i.e. wind sheer/ crosswind, microburst, etc) is hard to know. But clearly the empanage struck the edge of the runway far short of the mark.
I'm a flight attendant (NOT an expert), but it looks to me like all doors except the far aft galley-side door were opened and slides deployed. That indicates to me that the flight crew in the rear not only survived, but got the back door opened. My assumption is that the aft galley door was damaged and would not open.
It seems that a full evacuation was successful, CUDOS to the flight crew for a highly successful evacuation!
Press conference indicated 2 fatalities, 60 or so unaccounted for, and some of the people in hospital are in critical condition.
It'll be a miracle if those are the only fatalities. Hopefully so.
God willing. What a mess

Wow the overhead view of the crash site up now on Drudge is incredible. Amazing how short a distance it went after hitting the ground short of the runway before stopping. Incredible so many were able to walk away.
Haven't looked at the news coverage in a couple of hours. But I saw a report of a descent rate of about 1400 FPM on short final. That's twice normal rate or more. And I saw a report, obviously confirmed by physical evidence shown on news coverage, that the nose was high and the tail struck first.
My opinion, possible engine(s) loss or the pilot messed up.
For one reason or another, out of airspeed and about stall speed, or below when he came in. He sure didn't slide far. And major fire didn't break out, apparently, until most people got out. Wonder what his fuel status was? Just guessing.
Or maybe a 300 hours wonders sitting in the right seat that landed the plane.
Did anyone else hear and see the exchange between the pilot & tower before the accident? It was on CNN before. Seemed clear they were well aware of an issue b4 landing as they had the emergency gear rolling already- before touchdown. Nothing about that on tv now....
