Yes listening to Sisco Tower on the Archives - Asiana 214 was cleared to land, no problems indicated by pilot, next call was pilot requesting emergency vehicles (while on the ground) tower responded that they were on there way, go arounds and diverts put into place, eventually people spotted emerging...

SFO was closed for sometime due to debris on the runway, aircraft had to divert to Oakland and San Jose, some flights that had just departed turned back or diverted mid way through their flight to places like Denver and Reno.

Sounds a bit like a repeat to BA flight 38 to me.

Two different instances, BA38 was fuel starvation due to ice, this was a botched go-around at low altitude with a high attitude.

Latest news is that the a/c stalled with stick shacker seconds before impact.
Pilot requested a go-round.

Engines were at full idle and different to those on the BA a/c mentioned above.
