TOKYO (AP) - The pilot and co-pilot killed when a FedEx cargo plane burst into flames after bouncing off a runway at Tokyo's main international airport were Americans.
The co-pilot was a Texan.
The flight coming in from China skipped along the main runway at Narita Airport before skidding to a fiery halt while trying to land in high wind. The crash was captured on airport security cameras.
The pilot and co-pilot, the only people on board the flight, were pulled from the cockpit and taken to a local hospital, where they were later confirmed dead.
A Japanese government spokesman identified the pilot as Kevin Kyle Mosley of Hillsboro, Ore., and the co-pilot as Anthony Stephen Pino of San Antonio.
Unusually strong winds of up to about 47 miles per hour were blowing through Narita City this morning.
