Authorities searched the charred remains of a plane that crashed and killed 88 people on Thailand's resort island of Phuket, finding the flight data recorders but saying Monday it was too early to tell what doomed the flight. The budget One-Two-Go Airlines flight was carrying 123 passengers and seven crew from Bangkok to Phuket when it skidded off a runway Sunday while landing amidst strong wind and rain, catching fire and engulfing some passengers in flames as others kicked out windows to escape. Investigators recovered the plane's two flight data recorders, known as "black boxes," which they hoped could yield some answers about the accident in the coming weeks.
