((The 88 people on board endured two terrifying dives...the last one upside down... in a high speed plunge into the Pacific. The first happened with the plane at 31-thousand feet. A jam in the jet's horizontal stabilizer forced the nose down -- the jet dropped three times faster than normal. But a minute later... at 24-thousand feet... the pilots regained control and leveled the plane. Those on board may have thought the worst was over. For the next 9 minutes the plane descended normally and prepared for an emergency landing. But then in quick order the fatal sequence began. The cockpit voice recorder picks up the sound of a "loud noise". At about the same time radar catches the image of something -- perhaps part of a wing or part of the tail -- that may have broken off the plane. JIM HALL, CHMN NTSB: These primary radar hits might be indicative...and I emphasize MIGHT be indicative of something coming off flight 261 near this point. Whatever happened, the pilots could not hold on. The jet pitched over...much like a rollercoaster at the top of a hill... and plunged in a steep dive. Unbelted passengers, unsecured food carts and bags would have been slammed against the plane's ceiling. As the nose reached 70 degrees...nearly vertical...the plane rolled over on its back. The jet upside down... took just over a minute to reach the water where it was obliterated by an extremely violent impact. Investigators now are virtually certain that the plane was brought down by a mechanical failure in the tail. The Navy has already recovered part of the wreckage that may explain why the failure happened. Bob Orr, CBS News, Washington.))
