VIDEO: Colombian Boeing 727 cargo crash kills five

Five people have reportedly been killed after a Boeing cargo plane overshot the runway on takeoff just moments before crashing in a Colombia field on Tuesday. The plane, belonging to Colombian airliner Aerosucre, crashed in Puerto Carreño, Colombia, and was carrying six people on board, the pilot, co-pilot and crew members, Telesur TV reported.
According to local media, one person survived.

The plane crashed after leaving the German Olano airport, near the Venezuelan border. Witnesses captured dramatic footage of the flight overshooting the runway and struggling to gain altitude. At one point it appeared the plane may have hit a fence surrounding the airport. The footage then shows the Boeing 727 aircraft descending into the field and bursting into flames.
