MADRID, Spain - An airliner bound for the Canary Islands swerved off the runway during takeoff from the Madrid airport Wednesday and caught fire, Spain's national airport authority said. The Interior Ministry confirmed at least 45 deaths, but some news reports put the death toll at nearly 150.
Thick, white smoke billowed from the scene at Barajas airport.
Spanair flight JK5022 was bound for Las Palmas in the Canary Islands, a popular vacation spot off West Africa, the company said.

This is sooo scary! We just flew with this company a mere 3 days ago! Check out our link on the side to CNN.com. They are now saying that around 80% of the passengers have died of the 178 total.
