    Forum Investigating the Deadly Asiana Airlines Crash Investigators are trying to determine why a Boeing 777 crash landed at SFO airport on Saturday, killing two passengers and injuring more than 180 others. Witnesses said the Asiana Airlines flight came in low, and that its tail appeared to hit the runway. The blackened airplane was engulfed in flames and much of its roof had been torn off.
