(Locator: Taipei, Taiwan)


Investigators will scour the crash scene today in Taipei looking for the mysterious object the pilot reported hitting during the aborted take-off in stormy weather. Finding that object.. could be the key in determining what caused the Singapore Airlines 7-47 to burst into flames killing dozens of passengers.

sot: John Purvis/Aviation Safety Expert

"The visibility I guess was down to about a quarter of a mile and it might be at night, wet runway, shiny lights. The crew may not have seen what was on the runway."

(natz break/wind and rain)


The weather at the time of the take-off will also be looked at very closely. There was driving rain and heavy winds from an approaching typhoon, but officials from Singapore Airlines are defending the pilot's decision to take-off. They say winds speeds and visibility levels did not exceed maximum levels for closing the airport.
Incredibly, more that half of the 179 on board the Boeing 747 survived the crash and the blaze that engulfed the plane. Survivors describe a harrowing scene as a fireball swept through the cabin.

sot: Passenger/survivor

"We saw flashes of fire and the plane fell apart. flames came into the cabin, smoke was everywhere."
Many of injured are still hospitalized suffering from burns. Officials say some of the dead were burned beyond recognition and DNA testing will be used to establish identities. Approximately two dozen of those dead are believed to be Americans. Singapore Airlines is providing all families of victims with 25 thousand dollars in immediate compensation.

Defendant Jeffrey Allen Thomas and his attorneys were in court yesterday.
They argued that Pulaski County investigators used inaccurate information to obtain a search warrant.
The judge ruled that the error was NOT intentional and did NOT affect the case.
Thomas was charged with Munsey's murder and rape or ATTEMPTED rape last February, after her partially-clothed body was found in a remote section of the county.
150 prospective jurors have been selected to appear for Thomas' trial on November 30th.
Defense attorneys say they'll ask for a change of venue.

Flu season normally begins in December.
Even though there's been a delay in getting the vaccine this year, health officials say there is still plenty of time to get the flu shot.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=04-File Tape]


Many are wondering why some places have flu shots already and others don't ...
Doctor Jody Hershey says that's because companies and health care providers are buying the vaccine from different manufacturers.
While all of the manufacturers had problems growing a strain of the virus, two of the four had problems with the Food and Drug Administration, causing further delay.
And one of those companies has shut down.

And those census takers have to count fast.
They have just a few weeks to knock on 350- million doors. (------------) At last count a decade ago, China had just over one-point-one- BILLION people.
