A large cargo plane crashed and broke apart while trying to abort a take-off at Brussels airport on Sunday, authorities said.

The Boeing 747-200 skidded to a halt in a field at the end of a runway....

Four of the five crew members on board the plane, operated by US-based cargo carrier Kalitta Air, were slightly injured and were hospitalised, said Jan Van der Cruysse, spokesman at Brussels Airport.

"The plane is very seriously damaged," he said.
