Turkish Airlines flight TK1951 crashed shortly before landing at Amsterdam's Schiphol International airport right around 10.35am local time on Wednesday morning. The flight from IST was operated by B738 TC-JGE, which had been delivered to the airline in 2002.
Initial reports about casualties have been contradicting each other, but the flight is said to carry 118 passengers and 8 crew, many of which seem to have survived the impact.

Quoting Rquesty (Reply 207): Forgot to add - that fact didn't come from me ! I am investigating.
Why would the plane come down 500 meters from the end of the runway ? Stalled ? too low for windshear ? and there is a large piece of debris INFRONT of the aircraft....... Thoughts ? You can always email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have info you don't want to publish openly, atlhough I hope you do.
Richard...at this time, there is nothing but speculation to go on. There are dozens of possible reasons why the plane landed where it did, why there was no fire, why the pieces are arranged as they are and what caused the accident in the first place.
As you have noted already, cnn itself rushed to air with incorrect information.
My suggestion is to rely on facts rather than asking for speculation for your reports. Anybody can claim to be an expert.

Quoting Midcon385 (Reply 17): Did I understand the NOS Journaal reporter to say 4 or 5 dead? Dutch is not my native language...
Yes, that is the count of the body bags. A spokesmen of the AMC university hospital says 7 wounded people are hospitalized, four of which are in critical condition. More wounded have been taken to other hospitals.

There is another huge part sitting in the field a few hundred meters to the right and to the front of the airplane. This in addition to the engine which is also separated and is resting far away to the right.
I could not really indentify the part, but it looks like a part of the wing. It seems some parts really detached in-flight.
