At least 37 people are dead after a Turkish cargo jet crashes into Kyrgyzstan village.

Turkish Airlines Flight 6491, a wet leased Boeing B747-412F operating as TC-MCL overshot the runway on approach to Manas Airport, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

Several homes were damaged after the plance was attempting to land in dense fog.

The plane was supposed to make a stopover at Manas on its way from Hong Kong to Istanbul.

Locals thought at first the area had been struck by an earthquake.

On 1 March 2010, an Airbus A300 registration TC-ACB sustained substantial damage when the port undercarriage collapsed on landing at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan.

Similar plane owned by the same company.
