Flight 214's Crash-Landing Caught on Film

Fred Hayes was filming planes land at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday when Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash-landed on the runway. Obviously, the footage is difficult to watch. Two Chinese teens—who were on their way to church camp—were killed and scores more injured. The investigation into exactly what went wrong could take weeks if not months. (Although the early signs point to pilot error.)
