OZ 214 ICN-SFO (reg no HL-7742), a 2006 Boeing 777-200ER with P&W PW4090 engines; flew ICN - KIX - ICN immediately prior (not as OZ 214). 291 passengers and 16 crew on board. 3 people dead, 48 seriously injured, 132 less so.

Aircraft landed short on approach (VFR weather, ILS out of service, PAPI working) impacting the seawall delimiting runway 28L with main landing gear and then the tail 11:28 PDT, careering down the runway to a stop and ensuing fire. The empennage and both engines separated from the fuselage, and fire from an oil drip in engine no. 2 burnt a significant part of the upper forward fuselage.

Runway 28L / 10R was closed until 1700 PDT 12 July; all SFO runways are open.

Just reported by MSNBC as well. Apparently it was a 777 inbound from ICN. No details on casualties as yet.

ETA: Video of aftermath here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1as7d7X2UQ Plane was flight 214 per flightaware. http://flightaware.com/news/article/...ing-at-SFO/182

The video appears to show the tail section having separated from the aircraft, with the main body of the fuselage intact and not burning. Hopefully there was time to have gotten everyone off safely.

Pics I've seen have at least 1L and 2L slides deployed, so some survivors.

EDIT...KCBS is correcting itself and is a passenger jet.

Airport closed at least 2 hours.

Asiana Flight 214 ICN-SFO

Eye witness reports cartwheeling, tail breaking off.

Fuselage caught fire, roof of much of fuselage is burnt away. Chutes on left side deployed.

KCBS wrong, it was flight 214 from ICN.

Witness watching from the bayside Embassy Suites told CNN the plane appeared to land as normal, nose up, but on touchdown an unusually sizable puff of smoke emanated from the main gear, then the aircraft went out of control, cartwheeled, and there was a brief fireball. The left engine nacelle appeared to contact the ground, with the left wing separating.

No emergency vehicles awaited on scene so if an emergency was called on approach, it was not with much notice.

KCBS seems to be correcting themselves and the cargo information came from an announcement that Delta made in its lounge. Definitely a passenger plane.
