There were 291 on board, including 16 crew and a large group of vacationing Korean schoolchildren.

At least two on board were killed and 61 were injured, KTVU  is reporting.

Asiana is the second largest airline in Korea and was recently lauded as the best international airline by a business magazine.

Incredibly, it appears be that most of the passengers escaped the wreckage, even as smoke billowed from the aircraft.
