OZ214 seen with emergency equipment about one hour after crash landing on Runway 28L. While on approach, the tail appeared to have clipped the seawall at the end of the runway and broke off.

From eyewitness the plane came in too low.. the rear landing gear clipped the seawall collapsed also caused the tail fins to come off. I want to guess it is all pilot error or fatigue.

Great shot of this crash. Very well shows the extent of the damage, and post impact fire. Terrible incident, as of now (7/7/2013 01:40hrs) there are 2 fatalities, many injured. RIP to those lost, and deepest condolences to the families of those involved.

My prayers are with the family members of those who lost their lives in this fatal accident. I wish for the speedy recovery of those who are injured.

It appears to be pilot error especially if there was only a light breeze that day. After all, at the correct approach angle with correct flaps/slats you really don't need much if any engine power. That's just my 2 cents.

Hope this wasn't a problema like BA's 38. Another 777 that crashed at Heathrow in 2008.

Search for British Airways Flight 38. In 2008 a BA's 777 crash like this on landing. The cause was a defect on fuel lines. Frozen fuel became loose and when the pilots applied power the fuel filter became blocked and the aircraft lost power.
