TransAsia ATR crashes in Penghu

A TransAsia Airways ATR-72 has crashed during landing in Taiwan’s outlying Penghu Islands.

The aircraft was reported to be making a second approach to Magong Airport when it crashed amid heavy rains from Tropical Storm Matmo at about 7:20 p.m. local time yesterday.

The aircraft carried 54 passengers, two pilots and two cabin crew on the flight from southern Taiwan’s Kaohsiung International Airport.

Lee Wan-Lee, deputy director general of Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration, said: “Weather conditions at the airport at that time were within standards.”
