SAN FRANCISCO - At least two people were killed and 130 injured early Sunday (Thailand time) when an Asiana Airlines Boeing 777 clipped a seawall and crash-landed at San Francisco International Airport. 

The Associated Press has a slideshow of photos of the aftermath of the crash.

The plane, Boeing's largest twin-engine model, appears to have struck a seawall where the runway meets San Francisco Bay, said John Cox, a Washington-based aviation safety consultant who has participated in several National Transportation Safety Board investigations. That suggests that the jet was coming in short of the runway, Cox said in an interview.
