FedEx Plane Crashes at Narita Airport

A FedEx cargo plane with a pilot and co-pilot aboard crash-landed and burst into flames early Monday morning at Narita International Airport, east of Tokyo, killing both crew members, according to airport and police officials.

Transport ministry and other investigators believe the accident was partly caused by strong winds buffeting the MD-11 aircraft as it attempted to land at around 6:50 a.m. Winds of up to 72 kilometers per hour were blowing in the vicinity of the airport at the time.
