Indian plane crashed, 158 feared dead
At least 158 people are feared dead after a passenger jet overshot a runway, crashed into a valley and burst into flames in southern India on Saturday morning, officials said.

Eight of the 166 people on board Air India Flight IX-812 were taken to hospitals after the crash outside Mangalore International Airport, the airline's director told reporters.

The Boeing 737 took off from Dubai and crashed while trying to make its scheduled landing in Mangalore at 6:30 a.m. Saturday (9 p.m. ET Friday), Air India Director Anup Srivastava said.

Condolence to family and love ones.

Flow into that airport several times on smaller aircraft (Kingfisher Airlines), and that hilltop runway is an attention getter. I can just imagine trying to stick a 737 onto it.
