Pictures may be worth a thousand words, but this video left many speechless. The horror of the final minutes of AF Flight 4590. Captured on tape. It is the most stunning image yet of a crash French officials now think may have been the result of a catastrophic mechanical failure, although exactly what sparked it remains a mystery.

(GFX)


The pilots knew they were in trouble. Air traffic controllers told them so. You have a fire in the rear of the airplane--they said. The response: I have a problem in engine number 2.

(VO)

That is the same engine the pilot requested be repaired in the hour before takeoff. It involved the engine thrust reverser. A device used to help the airplane stop, but not fly. Although the ground crew gave the all clear for takeoff, the pilot disagreed. And ordered repairs to be made.

At this stageaccident or not.
But it was another red flag to help focus investigators efforts. Meanwhile the five remaining AF Concorde jets remain grounded, but AF is standing by the plane as one of the safest in the world. And its says it plans to resume flights within the next couple of days.

State officials may be having second thoughts about a controversial regulation that would have allowed foster parents to use corporal punishment.
The guidelines were scheduled to take effect in November, but the Department of Social Services now says it will hold a public hearing in Richmond in early September before implementing the foster care regulations.
The new guidelines would allow foster parents to hit, shake or pinch children as long as the action is not "abusive." Many child advocacy groups oppose the regulations.
