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.
