UPS plane crashes after takeoff from Dubai

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Crew members from Kentucky and Florida have been identified as the two people killed when a UPS cargo plane crashed shortly after takeoff outside Dubai.

The Atlanta-based package delivery company said in a news release Saturday that the crash killed 48-year-old Captain Doug Lampe of Louisville, Ky., and 38-year-old First Officer Matthew Bell of Sanford, Fla.

Lampe has been with UPS since 1995. Bell has been with UPS since 2006. Both crew members flew out of UPS's Anchorage, Alaska, pilot base.

The National Transportation Safety Board was dispatching an aviation investigation team to assist United Arab Emirates authorities in the investigation of Friday's crash.
