Federal Express Flight 508 crashed shortly after takeoff from Charles de Gaulle last night. Eyewitnesses report both engines erupting into flame as the plane began to climb over nearby farmland. Rescuers reported unusually dense plant growth in the area hampering their attempts to reach the site.
According to preliminary investigators, both pilots died in the crash. The impact ruptured the fuel tanks and the plane and cargo were entirely engulfed. The investigators are sifting through the debris in search of the flight recorder at this time.
Terrorism hasn’t been ruled out at this time, but no group has taken responsibility for the event.
