RIO DE JANEIRO - An airplane crashed and exploded shortly after take-off from Brazil's northeastern city of Recife early on Wednesday, killing all 16 people on board, rescue and air force officials said.

The plane, operated by small regional airline Noar Linhas Aereas, plunged into scrubland near a highway after taking off at 6:51 a.m. (0951 GMT) for its planned journey to another northeastern city, Natal.

Television images of the debris showed the charred body of the plane smashed into small pieces and only the tail section partly intact.
