As I watch television here, Channel 4 has just shown live pictures
of a Tower Air 747, Flight 41 bound for Miami, which has skidded off
the runway at JFK when the front landing gear seems to have collapsed on
takeoff.

One of the engines (#4?) is lying on the ground a few plane lengths
from the aircraft and passengers are being evacuated.

The news media reports that there were only a few minor injuries and
variously reports 350-400 passengers.
