Mexican officials: Airliner crashed after takeoff, no deaths

Passenger plane crashes on take off in northern Mexico

The head of Mexico's civil aviation agency, Luis Gerardo Fonseca, said it could take months to know the cause of the crash.

Flight 2431 was taking off at the General Guadalupe Victoria International Airport in the northwest Mexican state of Durango Tuesday afternoon when it crashed, according to Durango state Gov. José Rosas Aispuro Torres.

Mexico's Transportation Ministry said that 101 passengers and four crew members were on the plane at the time of the accident.

"At the moment we don't have any reports of deceased people", Aeromexico tweeted.

With the plane on the ground amid some bushes and brush, Flores said luggage began sliding down the aisle and she started to smell smoke.

"He sustained some injuries but we are grateful to learn he is alert and resting", the archdiocese said in a statement. There were no fatalities the airport said. She said authorities arrived about 20 minutes after the crash and helped them evacuate.

Cardoza said in an interview that around 85 people had been injured, adding that a fire resulting from the accident had been put out and there were no reports of burn victims.

He said the pilot and one other person were in serious but stable condition.

On Friday, she tweeted that her husband is a " kind, decent and moral human being " and she "fully supported" him . Moonves, 68, acknowledged Friday that "decades ago" he "may have made some women uncomfortable".

"A little girl who left the plane was crying because her legs were burned", Flores said. The plane had barely taken off when it felt like it was hit by a strong air current, another passenger told network Televisa.

The civil defense office of Durango state said the plane landed in a field near the airport for the state capital, also named Durango.

Governor Aispuro told local media that the Mexico City bound plane was in the process of taking off, when a loud sound, "a bang", was heard and immediately the aircraft was on the ground.

Brazilian plane maker Embraer said it is ready to assist authorities investigating the crash of one of its planes.

TV images showed the tail of a plan bearing an Aeromexico logo emerging from scrubland and a column of smoke rising into the sky.

Conesa thanked the crew "for their professionalism" and said that the aircraft "was perfectly maintained", but did not provide details on the circumstances of the accident.

A Mexican pilots association said previous year there were 66 accidents and 173 incidents in Mexican aviation, saying the number was "worrying" and calling for more supervision of flying schools, more funds for maintenance and oversight of fleets, and shorter flying hours for pilots.
