A China Airlines jet burst into flames, flipped upside down and slid down the runway at Hong Kong's new airport Sunday while trying to land in a tropical storm, killing two people and injuring at least 206, officials said. The jet's right wing dipped and struck the runway, breaking off as the airplane caught fire, officials told reporters. Witnesses said the jet was ablaze before it hit the ground--an account disputed by Hong Kong officials and China Airlines.
