An Air France aircraft carrying 21 passengers and three crew on a local flight crashed near Brest in western France leaving the pilot dead and three injured, rescue workers said.
The CRJ-100 plane on a flight operated by Brit Air from Nantes to Brest crashed on Sunday night at Saint-Divy, just 800 metres from the runway at Brest-Guipavas airport, Finistere regional administrator Dominique Schmitt told journalists.
Fire raged through the aircraft, which was cut in two, after the crash just beside a house.
