Eye witness: 'The tail was almost vertical in the air, doing a twisting motion'

Bryan Piper, a witness who took photos showing the smoke billowing from Flight 214, joins MSNBC’s Alex Witt. He was across the water at the Marriott, half a mile from the SFO runway.  He gives Alex his initial reaction to what he saw and explains that passengers exited the plane in a calm manner—walking and not running. Says that there was no fire at first and that it was a dust ball at first and a little black smoke started 45-65 seconds after the crash.
