ASIANA AIRLINES CARGO AIRCRAFT CRASHES

An Asian Airlines 747 cargo aircraft, with two people on board, crashed into waters off South Korea’s southern resort island of Jeju on Thursday. The pilot reported a mechanical problem shortly before losing contact with air traffic workers.

Coast guard searchers have recovered part of a wing with an Asiana Airlines logo on it, life jackets and parts of a pilot seat.

The plane had taken off from South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, west of Seoul, and was bound for Pudong in China, Asian Airlines said in a statement. It was carrying computers, semiconductors, paint and resin solution among others, it said.
