Reports from Kenya say a plane has skidded off the runway at Wilson Airport, Nairobi.
Witnesses say the craft lost its way during take-off to Mombasa.
The aircraft plunged into a thicket, hitting some trees and breaking part of its wing, before being grounded, tilting to one side.
According to a passenger, the plane was yet to hit the skies when the pilot realized some issues.
There were no immediate reports on casualties but most of the passengers suffered trauma after literally facing death.
