This is what my nightmares are made of! Good to know that it was a cargo and there were no pax on board. I found the statement 'The plane is very seriously damaged' by the airline spokesperson quite hilarious indeed!
An aeroplane has crashed on take-off from Belgium and spectacularly split in two. Four of the cargo plane’s crew were slightly hurt and taken to hospital, according to a spokesman for Brussels Airport.
The large Boeing 747 had attempted to take off for a flight to Bahrain but suffered an unknown problem and crashed at the end of the runway, near railway tracks and some houses.
On impact it split cleanly in two around ten yards behind the cockpit. (Telegraph)
