Lufthansa Cargo Plane Crashed

On Tuesday July 27,2010 a Lufthansa cargo plane crashed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This is a disaster.

Its German pilot and co-pilot were injured.

The plane was close to the airport when it caught fire and the engines stopped working.

Then it crashed and split into two halves.

The plane came from Frankfurt to Riyadh and was on the way to Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and then to Hong Kong.

I think it was lucky that the pilot and co- pilot were not killed in the crash.

In the Fedex plane crash in China on March 23, 2009 the pilot ad  co-pilot were killed.
