Human remains found after cargo plane crashes in Anahuac

"It looks like total devastation from the aircraft".

Atlas Air, with headquarters in Puchase, N.Y., confirmed there were three people onboard. "Those people and their family members are our top priority at this time".

The Chambers County Sheriff's office said it was responding to the crash and that the plane had been located in Jack's Pocket, at the north end of Trinity Bay near the city of Anahuac, according to a Facebook post by the sheriff's office.

According to FlightAware, an aircraft tracking website, the plane was at an altitude of 4,200 feet and traveling at 281 miles per hour when contact was lost.

Biggest, brightest supermoon of the year will be visible Monday night

The logistics and online shopping giant Amazon launched its Prime Air service in August 2016 using leased aircraft from two cargo aviation providers as part of its so-called "vertical integration" strategy that also includes the development of package-carrying drones.

Witnesses said they heard the plane's engines surging and that the craft turned sharply before falling into a nosedive, Hawthorne said.

FAA investigators arrived at the scene shortly after the crash with authorities from the National Transportation Safety Board, which will lead the investigation.

Footage from local news station WFAA showed rescue helicopters with the U.S. Coast Guard overhead Trinity Bay, surveying the wreckage.

17 killed in fire at Delhi's Karol Bagh hotel
The death toll later rose to 17, including a mother and child who tried to escape the flames by jumping from an upstairs window. There were 53 people in the 45-room budget hotel, which had a canopy on the terrace, housing what appeared to be a restaurant.

The Federal Aviation Administration reported that the plane was a Boeing 767 twin-engine aircraft.

The flight from Miami to Houston was a cargo flight operated by Atlas Air on behalf of Amazon. "We appreciate the first responders who worked urgently to provide support". Configured as a passenger plane, the 767 can carry from 200 to 300-plus passengers, according to Boeing.

The plane was nearing a line of thunderstorms in an area of turbulence when it went down, said a person familiar with the still-preliminary data being collected.
