All 290 passengers managed to escape escaped from the plane.

It is understood the tail snapped from the plane which was coming from Seoul, South Korea.

Passenger David Eun tweeted: "I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I'm ok. Surreal..."

He added: "Fire and rescue people all over the place. They're evacuating the injured. Haven't felt this way since 9/11."

The plane, operated by Asiana Airlines, was coming from Seoul, South Korea and apparently crashed sometime before touching down on Runway 28.
