Pilot, Co-Pilot Die In UPS Crash, A large UPS cargo plane crashed early Wednesday morning near the airport in Birmingham, Ala., killing the pilot and co-pilot.

Investigators on the scene are now assessing the conditions of the aircraft, officials said.

“We are just at the very, very beginning stages of our investigation,” Robert Sumwalt, member of the National Transportation Safety Board said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Sumwalt added that investigators have not been able to recover the cockpit voice and flight data recorders as parts of the plane’s fuselage are still smoldering.

The pilot and co-pilot were the only people killed or injured in the fiery crash, Mayor William Bell said. Neighborhoods in a half-mile radius of the site were evacuated, he said.
