A UPS cargo plane crashed Wednesday morning on approach to the airport in Birmingham, Alabama, killing two. Authorities say the pilot and co-pilot were killed in the A-300 aircraft crash. And it doesn't appear weather was a factor, since it was calm at the time. The crash happened on a street parallel to the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport property. No buildings were hit, and no one on the ground was hurt. The Federal Aviation Administration says the plaen was headed to Birmingham from Louisville, Kentucky. The National Transportation Safety Board says it's sending a team to the scene to investigate.
