An Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 arriving from Seoul with 291 people aboard crashed at San Francisco International Airport about 11:30 a.m. Most of the passengers got off the plane safely, but there are some injuries and possibly deaths. The tail of the plane, Asian Airlines flight 214, separated from the fuselage and there has been a fire fight. The plane is on the side of runway 28L, one of four runways at SFO. Self-proclaimed "digital media guy" David Eun, @eunner on Twitter, was on the plane and has been posting tweets — including the photo above.

Los Angeles Times reporter Maeve Reston had just landed before the Asiana plane crashed. She has been feeding the paper and tweeting from the airport terminal.
So glad everyone is fine after the SFO plane crash, at least according to eyewitness accounts so far. We landed here at SFO shortly before— Maeve Reston (@MaeveReston) July 6, 2013
Gate agents here at SFO are telling passengers they have no idea when they might be able to get out. Trying to rebook them for tomorrow— Maeve Reston (@MaeveReston) July 6, 2013
SFO is currently closed. Paul Chinn has a good photo of the wreckage at SFGate.com, the website of the San Francisco Chronicle: Story
