NEWS| 9 dead in Turkish plane crash in Amsterdam

A Turkish Airlines plane with 135 people aboard slammed into a muddy field while attempting to land at Amsterdam's main airport Wednesday.

Nine people were killed and more than 50 were injured, many seriously, officials said.

The Boeing 737-800 broke into three pieces on impact about two miles (three kilometers) short of a runway at Schiphol Airport. The fuselage split in two, close to the cockpit, and the tail broke off. One engine lay almost intact near the wreck in the muddy field. The other was some 200 yards (meters) from the plane and heavily damaged, an Associated Press photographer at the scene said.

Flight TK1951 left Istanbul's Ataturk Airport at 8:22 a.m. (0622 GMT, 0122 EST) bound for Amsterdam, then crashed at 1031 a.m. (0931 GMT, 0431 EST).

Authorities say they have found the flight data recorders of the plane.
