Samsung executive David Eun in Boeing 777 crash at SFO:

'Most everyone seems fine'

In the last hour, a Boeing 777 operated by Asiana Airlines crash-landed at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Immediately, dozens of tweets began flowing with news and firsthand accounts from the airport including Samsung executive David Eun, who says he was aboard the downed plane, calling the experience "surreal" and reporting that "most everyone seems fine." Several pictures of the 777 show the vertical stabilizer completely missing, emergency slides deployed, and black smoke billowing above.

4. flight attendants not doing their job

is why... carrying your luggage down is a no-no (from someone who has had to slide down one of those bad boys...)

5. Oh, yeah, those slides are quite the ride,

though with the landing gear collapsed they were a lot closer to the ground than normal. But you really have to leave your stuff behind, otherwise it gets to be a huge clusterfuck and people get hurt.

6. yep... took a few days to get one of my items back...

and the slide felt pretty high up even though we were on an MD-80 variant... can't imagine what a terror it would be out of one of the big tubes in the sky...

7. I've been down an A330 slide

but it was in an airline training facility so there were no issues with emergencies or luggage. But that slide is very long and steep and it was quite the ride, even though the floor was padded. Under the circumstances, though, it was kind of fun. I learned that you have to keep your arms tucked in or you'll get rug burns on your hands and elbows.

9. yikes...

my slide was only a few feet... the A330 would be rough but can you imagine the 380 or upper cabin exit from a 747... i think i would die of fright.
