Turkish cargo Boeing 747 crashes in Kyrgyzstan

Recommended Posts

A Turkish cargo jet has crashed in Kyrgyzstan, killing a pilot and dozens of people on the ground. Most of the victims are believed to be residents of a village in the crash area when the Boeing 747 came down in dense fog near Manas airport.

The plane reportedly crashed as it tried to land at around 7.30am local time (1.30am UK time) near the capital Biskek, in an area with a number of summer houses. Mukhammed Svarov, head of the crisis management centre at the emergencies ministry, said at least 30 people were dead after the plane damaged 15 buildings.
