Birmingham Plane Crash Updates
Federal officials expect to know Friday whether any information can be recovered from the so-called black boxes from this week’s crash of a UPS cargo plane near the Birmingham airport. They say preliminary evidence shows no sign of a pre-crash fire or engine failure. The plane, flying from Louisville to Birmingham, clipped trees and power lines before crashing and catching fire in a field close to the end of a runway. WBHM has complied the latest updates on the story.
