25.05.2011/ 17:20 GMT
India/ Faridabad - A small chartered plane being used as an air ambulance to ferry a patient to a New Delhi hospital crashed Wednesday into a residential neighborhood on the outskirts of the Indian capital,
killing 10 people.

The aircraft had seven passengers on board and was just minutes from landing when it slammed into a residential building in the city of Faridabad, south of New Delhi.
The plane broke into two and caught fire, charring part of the house. Hours after the crash, the plane's tail was still perched on the house's roof and its engine lay in a nearby alley.
All those on board were killed and three others living in the house died as well.
Two other people were injured. The bodies were charred beyond recognition.
The aircraft was bringing a critically ill businessman from the eastern city of Patna to a hospital in New Delhi. The passengers included two pilots, two doctors and a medical attendant.

USA/ CA/ Point Mugu Naval Air Station -
Three crew members aboard a Boeing 707 tanker (N707AR) loaded with jet fuel escaped with only minor injuries when the airplane skidded off the runway and exploded into flames at a Southern California Navy base, officials said. The plane crashed as it was taking off from Naval Base Ventura County Point Mugu at about 5:25 p.m. Wednesday. It slid to a halt within a few hundred feet of the Pacific and burst into flames, with thick black smoke pouring out the shattered wreck.
The plane was operated by Alexandria, Va.-based
Omega Aerial Refueling Services Inc., which contracts with the Navy to provide fleet operations support and fuel transport services. All three crew on board were civilian employees. Though a helicopter dumped multiple loads of water on the plane, the wreckage continued to burn for more than three hours.

22 dead in plane crash
in Argentine Patagonia

18.05.2011/ 23:50 UTC
Argentina/ Patagonia/ 20 km north of Prahuaniyeu

A twin-engine
Saab-340A airplane, registered LV-CEJ and operated by Argentina’s Sol Lineas Aereas crashed in the Patagonian province of Rio Negro last night, killing all 22 people aboard. Sol flight 5428 was flying from the city of Neuquen to Comodoro Rivadavia when the pilot reported an emergency at 8:50 p.m. local time. That was the last communication between the airplane and controllers. It crashed 20 km north of Prahuaniyeu, Argentina. Nineteen passengers, including one child, and three crew members were on board.
The airplane was a 34-seat Saab 340 model.
The crashed plane was built by Stockholm-based Saab AB (SAABB) in 1985 (first flight on 25 APR 1985).
Sol vice president Juan Nyffenegger said Thursday in Buenos Aires that the twin-engine Saab 340 had taken off normally and had no records of technical problems. The plane was relatively modern, built in the late 1980s, and the pilots were quite experienced, he added.
He and other company representatives repeatedly discounted speculation about the cause of the crash and stressed that accident investigators will determine what went wrong after recovering the cockpit recorders.
