The plane that crashed around 11:45pm yesterday (June 1st) night was an AMERICAN AIRLINES MD-82, age 16, registration number N215AA c/n 49163. It was running with 145 people on board (6 crew, 139 passengers) when it crashed. So far, 9 are dead, including the captain of the plane. The plane apparently ran off the runway, hit a pole, broke in to, burst into flams, and rested along the banks of the Arkansaw River. It was American Airlines flight 1420, Dalls (DFW) to Littlerock, Arkansaw. 77 people are checked into a local ospital. I will get back to you with passenger/family help crisis line from American Airlines as soon as I receive it. They are still unsure the definate cause. When the plane landed, there was SEVER lightning storm and rain. It was expected at 9:41pm, yet circled for 2 hours. There are 4 MAIN belifes the NTSB is researching...
1.)Slippery runway caused plane to not be able to stop
2.)Captain tried to make a go-around when touching ground
3.) Just overshot the runway. REst in peace to all hwho
or 4.) Captain could not see
Rest in peace to all who have died. That beaks Americas record for 1 and 1/2 years without 1 passenger fatality.
