Checking out right now, apparently the plane has skidded off the runway, but everything is very confusing at the moment. No reports of victims so far. There is a small fire as well. One of the spanish newspapers says the plane is on fire and that there could be at least two victims.

On the other hand, another newspapers says there are no reports of victims, so I guess we will have to wait....


I hope everyone is safe...

elpais.com informs the plane "provoked a fire and there's a big column of smoke". No victims reported so far.

Meanwhile, elmundo.es brings us some more details... it was a flight to Gran Canaria, had 160 passengers onboard and reports "there could be two casualties.... there's also reports of 43 wounded so far.

Flight number was Spanair 5022.

Television Española is saying that also at this time Madrid Airport is closed due to the incident. They are mentioning that some news agencies are saying 2 people dead but that has not yet been confirmed. Also confirmed 160 pax aboard and the flight was a scheduled Spanair flight from Madrid to Las Palmas(Gran Canarias). No further information yet.

I am watching now CNN+ and the live feed they have shows a lot of white and black smoke. Looks like the camera that is showing this is from the M-12 highway but the plane is not visible.

Now they are showing a feed from another source and there are 2 separate areas of smoke...one white....and one black. The 2 smoke columns look far apart from one another.
