3 Americans killed in Plane crash in Shanghai,China

Three Americans were killed and one hurt when a Zimbabwe cargo plane on its way to Kyrgyzstan crashed on take-off in Shanghai.

Their cargo plane burned and crashed at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport, Chinese state media reported Saturday.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport (Shànghǎi Pǔdōng Guójì Jīchǎng) is a major aviation hub in Asia, particularly in the East Asian region, and is the primary international airport serving Shanghai of the People’s Republic of China.

The BBC said Shanghai television carried reports indicating the plane’s tail broke off into several parts and fell to the ground. Scores of firefighters responded to the scene, where thick clouds of black smoke were billowing into the sky, local reports said.

Four other people on the plane were seriously injured, and the cause of the crash is not yet known, the NTSB said.
