What exactly took place:

The accident happened as the Federal Express plane arrived at Narita international airport, near Tokyo, from Guangzhou in China.

Japan’s public broadcaster NHK showed dramatic footage of the plane bouncing as it landed on the runway, then bursting into flames.

Dozens of flights have been cancelled as one runway at Narita remains closed.

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.

The accident happened at about 0650 local time on Monday (2150 GMT Sunday).

The two crew [both American] were taken to hospital but both were confirmed dead.
