Default UPS Cargo Plane Crash - Birmingham

Crashed this morning in a field short of the runway. It's about a mile from my office, saw the smoke coming in.

Both pilots died. Not sure about anything else right now.

Yea, story is tower heard no distress from the air craft, but witnesses are saying the plane was lower than normal, engine sounded like it was sputtering, and debris from the plane is spread over half a mile short of the crash site.

cack...i'm sorry to report- but you might have to wait a few extra days for your shipment. I know this is tough news to hear, so just let us know if you need anyone to talk to during this trying time, but i have faith you will persevere.

STAY STRONG!

Took 5+ hours to put out the fire. Impact may not have been what killed them, don't know yet. Pilots were found in the cockpit though.

FAA has records of six previous serious mechanical issues with this aircraft and two previous emergency landings.

Looks like the pilots tried to avoid hitting anything. They probably saved many lives by crashing in this field. I have a lot of faith in the skill of commercial airline pilots, just not so much faith in the faa and commerical airline maintenance anymore.

Classless...

And why would a shipment from Columbia to Greenville be on a plane in Birmingham? As a guy that worked 6 years for UPS, that's one day ground.

How would you like it if that was one of your family members that was killed?? You sure as hell wouldn't be worried about YOUR damn package.
