Another plane drops from the sky.  This time it's a Turkish Airlines jetliner that plowed into a muddy field just short of the runways at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.  The Boeing 737-800 was flying from Istanbul, Turkey to Amsterdam when it lost air speed and fell out of the sky.  Miraculously, some 125 people survived but nine died including both pilots.  Six of the injured were in critical condition, 25 were seriously hurt and 24 had slight injuries, health authorities said.

The plane broke into three pieces.  The fuselage split in two, close to the cockpit, and the tail broke off.  But the wreckage didn't burn partly because of engineering advances that have resulted in strengthened structures and fire retardant technologies, and because the plane would have used up a major portion of its fuel.  The soft muddy grounds also lessened the impact.


Investigators will explore a wide range of possible causes of the crash, ranging from weather-related factors such as wind shear or icing, to fuel starvation, navigational errors, pilot fatigue or bird strikes. They have checked the plane's documents and there is no problem concerning maintenance.
