Plane crashes kill 16 in Japan, U.S.

The pilot and co-pilot aboard a FedEx cargo plane were killed when the plane burst into flames on Monday while landing at Tokyo’s Narita airport in Japan, airport and hospital officials said. Both crew members were American men, an official at Narita Red Cross Hospital told CNN. Video from the landing showed the plane bouncing at least twice on the runway and veering left as it turned on its side before bursting into flames. The fire destroyed the aircraft, which was identified by FedEx as a McDonnell Douglas MD-11. Also seven children and seven adults died in a plane crash on Sunday in Butte, Montana, according to the FAA. The single-engine Pilatus PC 12 was headed to Bozeman, Montana, but was rerouted to Butte instead, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus. The plane crashed 500 feet short of the runway at Bert Mooney Airport. The National Transportation Safety Board is sending an investigation team to the scene, said Kristi Dunks, an aero safety investigator with the agency.
