A video posted on YouTube showed gray smoke billowing from the plane, which was lying on the runway on its fuselage.

A witness described to ABC News what he saw when the plane was landing.

"The nose of the plane was higher than usual for a plane coming in to land and I thought that was odd," Stephen Dear said. "It got closer and closer. I saw the back tail hit the ground."

Dear said the plane then "caught fire immediately."

The details of the landing are unclear and it is currently unknown whether there are any casualties.
