Japanese television has posted a video of a FedEx cargo aircraft crashing and burning after having landing troubles at the Narita International Airport Monday morning around 0700h.

The MD-11 freighter was arriving at Narita after a flight from Guangzhou, China, in strong wind conditions.

UPDATE: FedEx on Monday confirmed that Flight 80 was involved "in a major incident" upon landing at approximately 0700 local time at Narita and reported that the captain and first office did not survive.

Investigators at the scene have recovered the aircraft's flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder.
