I think only E110s and 120s have been used as cargo.

Glad that the pilot is okay!

He is very far from okay, I understand it is still not shure if he will make it or not.
If it ain't Boeing (or Embraer ;-)) I ain't Going!

He supposedly walked away and is in fair condition at a hospital. Not exactly "okay," I'll give you that, but from what it could have been...

Apparently he was pulled out of the wreckage by employees of a nearby car dealership. He was alive, but seriously injured. The Wal-Mart is about 1 mile from the airport. No word as to the problem that caused the crash.

Someone passing through checkout hands all of their items to the cashdesk operator.

"Thank you, Carrots, $2.95, Ipod Shuffle, $99.95"
Then a piece of the plane turns up in the trolley.
