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

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.
