SFO flights come in over the bay, dropping into their final glide path not all that far from that edge of the Bay... Done it many times..

It's sounding to me like some sort if failure, maybe attitude sensors, or maybe even loss of power to maintain that last bit, so the tail fell. Luckily it was apparently in almost a stall, slowing it below even the 160 mph norm, maybe 120 or less, so when it did hit, it was going way sow... That let most survive, bail out right away on stopping..

So many lucky people... Only 2 deaths... Of 307 passengers & crew...

Black box will tell the tale... Possible cultural problem, not questioning your superior.. Trying to save face... We have to wait, see... But so far it looks like an amazing success, considering..
