The members of a Turkish fire brigade are in the process of extinguishing a plane on fire that has fallen down on May 26. A Ukraine airplane with 74 people including flight attendants and 62 Spanish militant personnel dispatched as peacekeepers for Afghanistan has fallen down to the northwestern region of Turkey in the morning of May 26. Turkish broadcasting has reported that all the passengers have been most likely killed in this fall. It has been known that this plane was on its way to Spain but had an accident after failing to land around Trabzon, a harbor city of Black Sea where it was supposed to get refueled, due to the thick fog.
