    The A340 has a capacity of 350 and was carrying 291 passengers and crew combined. We don't know for sure, but there is an unconfirmed report that all made it out alive.

    No fatalities, 14 minor injuries.

    I've read that take-off and landing are the most dangerous times in a plane flight.

    Report from CNN said 309 in all, counting 12 crew. Some think it might have been struck by lightning.

    Great news - what could have been a big tragedy was not - another example of God's amazing grace, skills of the pilot & co-pilot, and fast action by the crew - PTL! God is so good.
