    Reports are saying that all passengers and crew (291-303...) sucsessfully evacuated the plane, before fire engulfed the plane's fuselage.

    Evidence of debris at the sea wall indicate the plane was too low on approach, and the tail section hit the seawall and then came off, tumbling end over end on the runway. The rest of the plane had a hard landing.

    Probably because the majority of the passengers were Asian and actually followed the crew members' instructions!

    I've flown on Asiana on their Boeing 777. This is very worrying.

    Looks like there are starting to be reports of fatalities due to the crash.

    Reports are that the plane spun round and round, sort of like a horizontial cartwheel, before coming to a stop.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal safety official said Sunday the cockpit voice recorder from Asiana Flight 214 showed the jetliner received a warning that it could stall because it was flying too slowly and tried to increase its speed before it crashed.

    National Transportation Safety Board chief Deborah Hersman said at a news conference Sunday the recorder also showed the Boeing 777's crew called to abort the landing about 1.5 seconds before impact.

    National Transportation Safety Board chief Deborah Hersman said at a briefing on the crash of the Boeing 777 said the plane was traveling at speeds well below the target landing speed of 137 knots per hour, or 157 mph.

    "We're not talking about a few knots," she said.

    Hersman also said the aircraft's stick shaker - a piece of safety equipment that warns pilots of an impending stall - went off moments before the crash. The normal response to a stall warning is to increase speed to recover control.

    There was an increase in speed several seconds before the crash, she said, basing her comments on an evaluation of the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder. They contain hundreds of different types of information on what was happening to the plane.

    And at 1.5 seconds before impact, there was a call for an aborted landing, she said.

    Pilots normally try to land at the target speed, in this case 137 knots, plus an additional five more knots, said Bob Coffman, an American Airlines captain who has flown 777s. He said the briefing raises an important question: "Why was the plane going so slow?"

    The plane's Pratt and Whitney engines were on idle, Hersman said. But the normal procedure in the Boeing 777, a wide-body jet, would be to use the autopilot and the throttle to provide power to the engine all the way through to landing, Coffman said.

    There was no indication in the discussions between the pilots and the air traffic controllers that there were problems with the aircraft.

    Four pilots were aboard the plane and they rotated on a two-person shift during the flight, according to The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in South Korea. The two who piloted the plane at the time of crash were Lee Jeong-min and Lee Gang-guk.

    Hersman earlier said investigators are looking into what role the shutdown of a key navigational aid may have played in the crash. She said the glide slope - a ground-based aid that helps pilots stay on course while landing - had been shut down since June.

    She said pilots were sent a notice warning that the glide slope wasn't available. Hersman told CBS'"Face the Nation" that there were many other navigation tools available to help pilots land. She says investigators will be "taking a look at it all."

    Since the crash, clues have emerged in witness accounts of the planes approach and video of the wreckage, leading one aviation expert to say the aircraft may have approached the runway too low and something may have caught the runway lip - part of a seawall at the foot of the runway.

    San Francisco is one of several airports around the country that border bodies of water that have walls at the end of their runways to prevent planes that overrun a runway from ending up in the water.

    Barr said he could think of no reason why a plane would come in to land that low.
