Plane Crash Military plane crash in Algeria kills more than 100

More than 140 military personnel were killed when a military plane crashed near Boufarik airbase outside the Algerian capital, local media reported on Wednesday. Video and images from the green field near the airport show rows of covered bodies lined up, and a stream of ambulances rolling through nearby streets.

"There are more than 100 deaths". The Defense Ministry expressed condolences to the families of the victims.

Algerie24, a local news website, said the plane was heading to the western Algerian city of Bechar.

"I was like, 'What the heck?' So I drove over to the golf course and I saw the plane was engulfed in flames", King said.

Watts said the plane had just taken off from the Scottsdale Airport, but no information was immediately available on its planned destination. It did not give a casualty toll.

The Soviet-designed Ilyushin-76 military transport plane crashed in an agricultural zone with no residents, Achour said. In recent decades, Algeria has bought military planes from both the USA and Russian Federation.

In February that year, an Algerian Air Force Lockheed C-130 Hercules crashed in a mountainous area in eastern Algeria killing 77 passengers and leaving one survivor.

A spokesman for the Scottsdale Police Department said that none of the six people on the plane survived.
