Continental workers go on trial this week in Concorde crash incident, failing to "properly maintain" aircraft
U.S. Airline Continental and two of its employees go on trial this week for the deaths of 113 people who were killed in a Concorde crash that put an end to the dream of supersonic travel.
A former French civil aviation official and two senior members of the Concorde program will be tried on the same charge, manslaughter, from tomorrow in a court near Paris, with proceedings expected to last for four months.
The New York-bound jet crashed shortly after takeoff from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on July 25 2000, killing all 109 people on board and four hotel workers on the ground.
