An Aeromexico airliner taking off in a blustery storm in northern Mexico smashed down into a nearby field but skidded to a stop virtually intact. All 103 people including 4 crew members aboard were able to escape advancing flames before fire engulfed the aircraft. The flight was heading to Mexico from Durango when the mishap took place. Firefighters rushed to the spot and doused flames and helped passengers to come out of the plane. Fifty passengers were treated at various hospitals for minor injuries.
