    UPS cargo jetliner crashes in Dubai, 2 killed - Reuters

    A 747-400 Boeing cargo plane operated by United Parcel Service Inc crashed in an air force base near Dubai's airport after takeoff on Friday, the U.S. parcel delivery company said.

    The United Arab Emirates civil aviation authority said the bodies of the two crew members on board were recovered.

    Al Jazeera television quoted witnesses as saying the plane was ablaze before crashing. State-run Dubai TV said the crash appeared to have been caused by a technical fault.
