Thumbs down Crash

One of my fellow DXB pilots called me within minutes of it happening. He said a plane had come low over his house shaking the place and then he heard an explosion/impact and then saw a big smoke plume.

Something bad has happened.

DUBAI | Fri Sep 3, 2010 12:17pm EDT

DUBAI (Reuters) - A cargo plane crashed on a busy highway in Dubai on Friday, setting some cars on fire, Al Arabiya television reported.

Ambulances were rushing to the area, located near a residential district, the station added. It did not report the model of aircraft or its size. Officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates An American cargo plane attempting to land at Dubai's airport instead crashed on a busy highway Friday, setting some cars on fire and killing several people, Al Arabiya television reported.

Ambulances were rushing to the area, located near a residential district, the station added. It did not report the model of aircraft or its size. The dead were thought to be the cargo plane's crew.

A large section of the plane was visibly on fire before it crashed.

This report will be updated as information becomes available.

Al Arabiya reported that the plane belonged to an unidentified U.S. company.
