At this new home on Autumn Lane near Salem, the vinyl siding's not attached, the foundation's cracked, and a wall split because the return air grill was not properly sealed.

He plans to build ten more homes here on Autumn Lane and has other projects in the Roanoke area, but he refuses to comment on these problems.

((
(Locator: Belfast, Northern Ireland)

Angry protestant militants hurled fireworks and fire bombs in protests that exploded across Northern Ireland for the third straight night. Belfast was one of the main flash points. Residents of some neighborhoods feared for their lives as their streets became battle grounds. Police were the main targets ... nine of them were injured by acid and fire bombs. And this is only the beginning of what could be a week of violence.

(Drumcree, Northern Ireland)

A Protestant church on a hill in Drumcree is the epicenter of the conflict. Police turned water cannons on the demonstrators last night to keep them away from a Catholic neighborhood. Protestant hardliners insist on exercising a historic right to march from here through a neighborhood that is now a Catholic stronghold. The police are determined to stop them.
But much more is at stake, including the future of Northern Ireland's power sharing government. This has become a test of whether the authorites have the will and the force to keep a peace that looks increasingly fragile. TF, CBSN, London.

(Concorde)

The supersonic Concorde was a bold idea that was a financial bust...too expensive to be economically viable...and its sonic boom too noisy. Only a handful were ever built. But grab your boarding passes...the Japanese may change that.

(SOT: ENGINE TEST)

First, cooperating with American companies like G-E, they developed this monster...an engine that can hit Mach 5...five times the speed of sound. Great idea, but still too noisy...and way too powerful for anything flying in the world just yet.

(STANDUP)

So with perhaps the fastest airplane engine in the world and no place to put it, the Japanese went back to their computers and designed what they think will work...a supersonic transport that will fly at a more sedate Mach-2, twice the speed of sound.

(Folds at computers/plane)

Japan's 15-hundred mile an hour speed machine would carry 250 passengers, charging no more than normal business class fares. Los Angeles to Tokyo...now takes ten hours.

(SOT: KIMIO SAKATA/Project Director/in English)

We could have five hours flight in supersonic jet. That's barely enough time for dinner, but not enough for sleeping, I think.

(Animation/SST flies)

From computer screen to flying reality is still billions of dollars away...but that's the great thing about flying...it's always attracted to the dreamers...who somehow made it so.
