BBC News reports:
At least 45 people have been killed after a passenger plane swerved off the runway at Madrid’s Barajas airport, Spanish officials say.
Several more were hurt when the Spanair plane bound for Gran Canaria left the runway with 166 passengers and six crew on board, just after 1445 (1245 GMT).
There were reports of a fire in the left engine during take-off. TV footage showed smoke billowing from the craft.
My thoughts are with anyone involved in this accident. It should be interesting to see this unfold, it looks pretty bad.
