    'Deaths' in jet crash fireball

    BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -- A One-Two-Go Airlines jet crashed and was engulfed in flames as it attempted to land in heavy rain at the Phuket airport in southern Thailand on Sunday, authorities said.

    Maj. Gen. Deecha Butnamphet, police chief in Phuket, said on local television station TITV that "we believe that there are many people who are dead. We are taking the dead and injured out from the scene.

    "The airplane is completely destroyed and inflamed," he said.

    It wasn't immediately known how many people were on board, though TITV said without citing sources that 123 mostly foreign tourists were the passengers, which was traveling from Bangkok to Phuket, a popular resort area for tourists.

    TITV reported 60 dead, but Chaisak Angsuwan, director general of the Air Transport Authority of Thailand, could not confirm that.

    Angsuwan told The Associated Press by telephone he believes "there are people dead, but the number is still unclear."

    Earlier, Angsuwan had told TITV that there was heavy rain when One-Two-Go airlines flight OG269 from Bangkok to Phuket attempted to make a landing. One-To-Go, a budget airline, is owned Orient Thai Airways.

    "The visibility was poor as the pilot attempted to land. He decided to make a go-around but the plane lost balance and crashed. It was torn into two parts," he said.

    It seems that repairs were made to the jet prior to it's last trip...
