THY Avro with ~77 on board. Down on final approach. Reports from a hospital say walking patients, at least 3 so far, so that's good. Let's hope they're all as good. No reports of fire, so that's good.

Weather said to be very foggy...

EverettWA, where did you hear it was an Avro? The OAG says flight TK 634, from IST, is to be operated by a 737-400.

(Mind you, the fact that there were five crew - as the BBC reported - would tend to push it towards an RJ100; i.e. 2+3).

Guess we'll find out soon enough.

http://www.cnn.com is reporting an Avro RJ100. I, however am not saying they are right, we all know their track record.

It crashed into military territory in Diyarbakir. Accordíng to n-tv, the airport was closed for some time because of bad weather and this plane was one of the first who landed there after it re-opened.

CNN has now issued a new email confirming that it is in fact an RJ100; it also says that there is a baby among the six survivors and that the death toll now stands at 70.

8 days into 2003 and already 2 plane crashes, not a great start, let's hope the trend doesn't continue.

NTV reports there might have been fire inside the plane. Many victims are badly burned, that points to a fire they say.

Sad ;(

Oh my, another TK ARJ lost. Terrible news indeed  Sad . Just why are three out of four ARJ crashes TK´s???
When I first heard the news, I checked the OAG and it said 737-400 - that gave me a rather chilly feeling down my spine, as I had been on two TK 734s just three weeks ago...

Anyway, hope there are some more survivours than early reports suggest.
