SAN FRANCISCO, CA (AP) - San Francisco's fire chief says authorities have accounted for all the passengers and crew members who were about the jetliner that crashed at San Francisco International Airport.

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said that as of Saturday evening the more than 300 people who were aboard Asiana Flight 411 had been located at either hospitals or the airport.

Earlier Saturday, Hayes-White had reported that authorities did not know where "upwards of 60" people were after the crash.

She says the confusion stemmed from survivors being brought from the wreckage from two different locations.

Two people were killed in the crash.

The NTSB is investigating the cause.

Funny for someone to say air travel is the safest. The US submarine program has not lost a sub in decades. There have been collisions and such and accidents but no entire ship loss. That may change soon, however, due the military new lack luster standards of taking anyone, and everyone regardless of their capabilities for service. If you want cut out engine failures on planes, things like engines dropping off onto houses etc. Start picking at random one person in the maintainace divisions of the airlines to fly on a plane they serviced. Do this at random, with no exceptions, and you will see a 100 fold increase in safety. Let one person fly and have bad experience with landing gear, engines, radar, or other equipment, and get back to their division and all hell will break loose on the lazy ones in the aircraft bay.

There was a time when not a year went by when there weren't at least two or three crashes a year, yet it was still the safest way to travel. Air travel in the last ten to fifteen years has never been safer. It seems we've got building airplanes down as well as we've got building cars down. I remember as a kid seeing cars broken down on the sides of the highways all the time, but that has become a thing of the past. Airline crashes have been becoming a thing of the past too with the exception of commuter and small private planes, which somehow miss the same scruitney of the FAA that they place on much larger jets. It would be nice to see the FAA make those small commuter planes as safe as our largest so they would be as safe. I pray for those who were killed and give my condolences to the their families, as they're having an absolutely horrendous day today. I hope the FAA finds out quickly what happened, but by the news stories released thus far, it would seem to be pilot error.
