Six Killed in Cork Plane Crash
Irish officials say the turboprop plane, with 10 passengers and two crew onboard, crashed and burst into flames on the runway in Cork.
Some reports put the death toll at eight. Four serious injuries were also reported.
Due to foggy conditions the plane had made two earlier landing attempts, according to officials of the Irish Aviation Authority. The crash occurred just before 10 in the morning, on the third attempt.
People living near the airport told the BBC they heard a plane that sounded "like it was in trouble."
There are reports of debris spread over a wide area of the runway. Eight fire crews responded to the scene.
Operated by Isle of Man-based regional carrier Manx2, the plane had been on a scheduled daily flight.
