Two aircraft collide over Germany

Tuesday, July 2, 2002

FRANKFURT, Germany -- A Russian airliner and a Boeing-made cargo plane collided over southern Germany late Monday, and up to 150 people aboard were believed to have been killed, police said.

Rescue workers have already recovered bodies of some of the victims after the Tupolev 154 and the Boeing 757 freight plane crashed into each other at 11:43 p.m. , said Wolfgang Wenzel, a spokesman for police in the city of Tuebingen.

The Boeing was carrying just two pilots, both of whom were believed to have killed, Wenzel said early Tuesday.
