On our local radio station we just heard recording of the pilots informing the tower about an emergency. Unfortunately no addiontional source available. As the current article states that no distress calls were made, we should keep an eye on this topic.
The Aviation Herald is reporting from emergency service sources, all occupants are accounted for and alive. Most other outlets reporting one death, from Korean diplomatic sources.
Watching FAA press conference on Fox, Fire Chief says two fatalities and NOT all people accounted for.
Thanks! I've updated it with sources and I'm waiting for a reviewer to take a look at it and it'll be published!
I just uploaded my personal photos to Wikimedia. I was a passenger on another plane: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Jkhoo
Airlines operating in the US have a lot to be proud of. Although the article incorrectly states this is the first major crash at a US airport since 11/2001 (American Airlines 587, crashed in Belle Harbor, NY, after takeoff from JFK), the only intervening major crash was Colgan Air flight 3407, which crashed on approach to Buffalo in 2009, killing 49. Over a 12-year period, that's not bad. Of course it's absolutely tragic for the families who lost loved ones, but the flying public can be grateful for all the hard work done by the NTSB, FAA, ATA, NASA, and many other groups and agencies that have contributed to this excellent record.

Hi! We'd need a verifiable source to add information to the article about other accidents and so forth. You can see the sources section at the bottom. It also might be a good idea to add it to the related Wikipedia article instead.
A new article can be started too, especially since this one is now about as fleshed out as it can get right now.
