Taiwan launches inquiry into plane crash that killed 48
By Faith Hung TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan authorities launched an investigation on Thursday into the crash of a TransAsia Airways turboprop plane in which 48 people were killed with the weather expected to be a factor in the inquiry. The plane, a 70-seat ATR 72, crashed on Wednesday evening near the runway while trying to land on the small island of Penghu, west of Taiwan island, after a typhoon had passed earlier in the day. The leaders of rivals China and Taiwan both offered their condolences over the deaths. Taiwan's civil aviation authorities said the weather had been suitable for flying.
