BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — An airport spokeswoman says the large UPS cargo plane that crashed went down in an open field just outside an airport in Birmingham, Ala.

U.S. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the A300 plane crashed around 5 a.m. today on approach to the airport before dawn. There is no information yet on injuries, but UPS spokesman Jeff Wafford says there were two crew members aboard. The plane was en route from Louisville, Ky.
