I think because of Elevation, the plane is falling at that height it may already be as 0ft. Also because the airport is in the mountain range?

Last reported position was several miles away from the airport. Most likely whatever receiver was feeding the data to FR24 wasn’t picking it up anymore at that point probably due to obstruction (terrain). You’ll see this a lot over oceans too. FR24 has that aircraft as landed at 1420 which coincides with a report I saw that the crash happened at 2:20pm local time.

Edit: Looks like it has been confirmed that S2-AGU flight BS211 is indeed the mishap aircraft, runway excursion.

Let’s not speculate yet. That’s the first rule of aircrash investigation.
Let’s hope there is hope for the passengers

Yes, @Rajdipta_De i have take a look on FR24 a while ago, no inbound / outbound traffic on that airport

Out of the 67 passengers, 17 people were reportedly taken to the hospital. There are survivors.

After seeing these pictures I thought that nobody could have possibly survived this.

Yeah me too. I thought was no survivor on that crash, after I see in other news, if there are still lucky passengers 😅😅

I think they will resume operation within a couple of hours.

What is going on? Three crashes this year, and yesterday (or on Saturday, can’t remember) there was a private jet crash too.

At least there were some survivors…

What is going on here!? One near miss (Pegasus), three major crashes, one helicopter in NY and now this… May these people rest in peace.

Update 8 minutes after the first one: 38 dead

Update 26 minutes after the first one: 50 dead (above is a “Live Blog”)

This same aircraft skidded off the runway earlier in 2015. It was repaired and put back into service 8 hours later.

FR24 just tweeted graphs with data.



Looks like they went down to 4,000 and then climbed back to 6,000. Possibly a go-around?
