There appear to be no survivors in the crash of a Bhoja Air Boeing 737-200 that crashed near Benazir Bhutto Airport in Islamabad, Pakistan, Friday. Witnesses said the aircraft was trying to land in a thunderstorm when it hit a wheat field a few miles from the airport. Wreckage and human remains from the 127 people aboard were spread over a half-mile area, according to an early report from The Associated Press. The airline, which was idled by financial problems 10 years ago, had just resumed operation a month ago.
