The UPS plane that crashed was a Boeing 747-400.
The plane was attempting to land at Dubai's Airport, when a technical problem on board caused the crash. A fire broke out on the plane as it was attempting to land.
The official United Arab Emirates WAM news agency is reporting that the aircraft came down in an unpopulated area, although it was near a residential district.
No pictures were revealed.

The witnesses said they heard loud explosion as the plane caught fire following the crash and huge smoke filled the sky. They said the plane narrowly missed a nearby building.

Police cordoned off the area and ambulances were rushed to the scene. Local officials, however, said that the accident happened in an uninhabited area and rescue operations were on.

UPS has had a strong safety record to this point, with only four, non-fatal accidents occurring since 1985, according to the Aviation Safety Network. Most recently, one of its planes caught fire in 2006 during a landing in Philadelphia in which all three crew members escaped safely before fire crews put out the blaze.
