Black hawk crash blamed on pilot error, but rescue work on the missing plane remains suspended by the US Coast Guard.
The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a travel alert for the north Texas town of Fort Worth after a suspected wing-injur더나인카지노y landing with its emergency landing aircraft was reported at about 12:45pm local time (1415 GMT) today.
It was originally classified as a “non-interference incident”, but the FAA has said no one was injured in the crash.
The air force said the plane went down a few minutes after take-off and was flying high over Fort Worth. Rescue efforts continued as it “wobbled out of control” and then plummeted to the ground, the FAA said in a statement.

The Federal Aviation Administration has not ruled out an incident such as this one being caused by pilots trying to 바카라 룰land unoccupied aircraft.
Officials say the NTSB will hold a news conference to answer questions from the public as part of its investigation. The agency would not rule out the crash being caused by an aircraft falling into the water but it said all passengers and crew were accounted for.
The aircraft involved in the reported wing-injury was operated by American Airlines (AA), the airline said.
Passenger Jeff Ruggles, who was travelling with his wife from Colorado, told NBC News: “We took off out of Fort Worth and we were on the way to Denver and had left our hotel.
“We couldn’t believe it but when we landed about six miles from where the aircraft had landed we saw the lights turn yellow and went back. It was pretty hard to believe they would crash here, so I ran downstairs and there were bodies everywhere.”
One passenger, Paul Burt, told The Associated Press that he and his partner were sitting around the side of th
