    Another Plane Crash - TransAsia Air - over 45 Dead

    At least 47 people were feared dead after a TransAsia Airways plane crashed Wednesday while trying to make an emergency landing in stormy weather in the Penghu Islands off the coast of Taiwan.

    Taiwan had been suffering strong winds and torrential rains Wednesday from Typhoon Matmo.

    Taiwan's Transport Minister Yeh Kuang-shih, who said 47 people were feared dead, was quoted by the government's Central News Agency as saying another 11 people were injured after the ATR-72 aircraft crashed outside the airport in Xixi village while attempting a second landing.

    Yeh said flight carried 58 passengers and crew members. CNA agency, quoting a local fire brigade chief, had initially reported the death toll at 51.

    Flight GE222 was flying from Kaohsiung, a major city on the east coast of Taiwan's main island, to Magong, one of two airports on Penghu Island, which is located halfway between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan in the Taiwan Strait.


    The Taiwan News reports that aircraft took off more than 90 minutes late because of the poor weather and the pilot reportedly asked to wait until 7:06 p.m. before being allowed to land.

    The plane slammed into the ground in the village, setting fire to at least two houses. Photos in the local media from the crash site showed a handful of firefighters using flashlights to look at wreckage in the darkness.

    Taiwanese media identified the pilot as 60-year-old Lee Yi-liang and his co-pilot as Chiang Kuan-hsing, 39, and said each had flown over 20,000 hours, according to Taiwan News.

    Although the center of Typhoon Matmo had already swept through the islands, heavy rain and strong winds from the system continued to batter the area.

    A radar image from the moment of the plane crash showed heavy rain over the area, AccuWeather reports.

    CNN International meteorologist Brandon Miller reported that the storm brought 10 inches of rain in the area and winds up to 47 mph.

    Airports in the adjacent mainland Chinese province of Fujian had canceled flights and trains ahead of Matmo's arrival.

    60 year old pilot with >20k hours and he's still flying ATRs instead of heavies? Doesn't inspire confidence in his proficiency. Or maybe he just sucked at kissing ass and playing politics with management.

    Hate to see what the flight attendants were like on an airline called TransAsia.

    The CNN air safety "experts" are buying extra houses this year based on all of the airtime they are getting.
