    KTVU live video. Reporter says there was a tail strike on landing, tail broke off, and plane continued down runway catching fire.

    Been very windy at the top of the Bay today so they may have the same high winds down there.

    Differing reports--one station says a cargo plane and another says 300-400 passengers.

    Youtube video shows fuselage intact but I don't see the tail. Slides deployed. If it was a cargo plane, would the slides deploy?
