Thank gosh everyone is ok.

"The captain is Fung."

Is that his name?

pilot took off from the taxiway, not the
runway!!!

From the news I've read so far, the pilot
was cleared for take-off. However, he
used the taxiway to take-off... probably
thinking it was the runway... However,
they did say the pilot flies on the
JFK-ANC-TPE route regulary on the A340s
and no one knows how he could have
made the mistake at ANC...


The US NTSB has already started investigation.
