The UPS cargo plane was on approach to the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport this morning when it crashed.
WSB-TV reports a large fireball was seen in the area but as of now there are no reports on how many people were on the plane or any injuries.
Reports say the flight originated in Louisville, Ky. and went down in a field owned by the airport.
KRMG will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
