Commercial airliner crashes

Another plane has crashed -- this one in eastern Venezuela and all 153 passengers on board died:

The West Caribbean Airways plane was en route from Panama to the Caribbean island of Martinique when its pilot reported trouble with both engines to Caracas' air control tower at around 3 a.m., said Francisco Paz, president of the National Aviation Institute.

Area residents claim to have heard an explosion and I'm assuming that this was from the crash itself.
