Feb. 23 (UPI) — A Boeing 767 cargo jet, operating as Amazon Prime Air, with three aboard, crashed into Trinity Bay near Houston, on Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The flight, Atlas Air Flight 3591, went down at about 12:45 p.m. about 30 miles southeast of Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.
The aircraft took off from Miami International Airport, the FAA said, and crashed into Jack’s Pocket, the north end of Trinity Bay. During the past 24 hours, the plane also flew from Hawaii to California to Miami.
The 26-year-old plane was operating as Amazon Prime Air, one of 30 767’s in Amazon’s fleet, based on the tail number.
“It looks like total devastation from the aircraft part,” Chambers County Sheriff Brian C. Hawthorne said to KPRC-TV. “Knowing what I saw, there can’t be any survivors.”
