747 cargo plane split in half on runway

There is nothing in the article about having passengers onboard I think its a cargo plane I don't see any windeos along the body. But still that must be a very scary event. What would happen if it was actually in the air? It would resemble the opening scenes of LOST.

A US registered 747 operated by Kalitta Air spilt in to two pieces following a takeoff accident at the airport in Brussels, Belgium today.

The flight crew reportedly heard a loud noise just before the fuselage separated during the takeoff roll. Four of the five crew members were slightly injured during the accident which fortunately left the 747 in good shape, despite having split in two.

They were also fortunate that the aircraft did not catch on fire as it was fully loaded with fuel for a flight to Bahrain. Belgian aviation investigators and the NTSB are already looking into the accident.
