3 passengers dead after Amazon cargo plane crashes in Texas

Cargo jet crashes in Texas with 3 on board - reports

A spokesman for Boeing said: "We are prepared to provide technical assistance to the National Transportation Safety Board as it investigates the accident".

The crash took place in Trinity Bay in five feet deep water, and is only accessible via flat-bottom craft such as airboats. The preliminary report is that there was no distress call, the sources said.

The hunt goes on for third victim after the jet, operating for Amazon Prime Air, plunged more than 3,000ft in 30 seconds.

Atlas Air confirmed on Sunday that the three passengers aboard a cargo plane that crashed in Texas on Saturday did not survive. "Our team continues to work closely with the NTSB, the FAA and local authorities on the ground in Houston".

It crashed into a bay near the city on Saturday after a rapid descent, and three people were on board at the time.

Three people were aboard the twin-engine Boeing 767 operated by Atlas Air Inc. when it went down before 12:45 p.m. CT, the FAA's Lynn Lunsford said.

Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne tells the Houston Chronicle that police had found human remains at the site of the crash of a Boeing 767 cargo jetliner heading to Houston.




Hawthorne said that the bay was filled with cargo from the plane. "At this point, it's total devastation", he said at that time.

Atlas Air said it was flying flight 3591 for Amazon. During its approach to George Bush, the 767 lost radio and radar contract with air traffic controllers Saturday as it crashed about 30 miles from the airport.

The plane was traveling from Miami to Houston.

Upon losing contact, they asked a United Airlines pilot if he had seen "ground contact" wreckage to his right or behind him.

"We're looking for a lost aircraft".

The recorders are required to be equipped with so-called pingers, which emit a distinct sound once they come in contact with water to make them easier to locate. Archuleta had been a pilot for Mesa since 2013.
