CHARLESTON: The pilot and co-pilot were killed when a cargo plane contracted by UPS went off the runway and over a hillside at a West Virginia airport on Friday morning, an airport official said. After crashing, the plane went down a steep, wooded hill and emergency crews were trying to reach the crash site from above and below, airport spokesman Mike Plante said. “It’s difficult terrain to negotiate,” Plante said. The Air Cargo Carriers plane had flown from Louisville, Kentucky, and arrived at the West Virginia airport at 5:43 am, Plante said.–AP
