A cargo plane contracted by UPS went off the runway and over a hillside at a West Virginia airport Friday morning, an airport official said.

The plane was being operated by Air Cargo Carriers Inc.as a subcontractor for UPS, which told NBC News the flight had originated from Louisville at 5:35 a.m. and was supposed to land at about 6:20 a.m.

Both the pilot and co-pilot were killed as their plane went off the edge of a steep, wooded hillside.

Plante added that accidents at Yeager are rare and that the runway's length is on par with major airports in NY and Chicago.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reported that almost two dozen emergency vehicles responded to the crash scene as crews attempted to reach the wreckage from above and below the slope.

WSAZ has confirmed that the plane left Louisville airport at 5:41 a.m. Friday.
