THE AIRPLANE IS SORT OF A CORROSIVE ELEMENT RIGHT NOW IN OUR RELATIONSHIP, A REMINDER OF THE HARD SPOTS...WE NEED TO CLEAN THAT UP AND GET ON WITH THINGS.

(FILE/sat pics of plane)

The question..of course..is what's left. The Chinese..as this satellite picture shows...moved heavy trucks around the plane...all the better to remove sophisticated spying gear.

(FILE/shots of busted up plane)

And then there's compensation..the US says it will pay for any labor or materials needed from the Chinese for repairing the plane...but nothing more.

(FILE/Media scrum at Hainan)

And remember all that media attention while the crew was being held. Not this time. Chinese officials called the offices of western media outlets in Beijing and warned...no way will you be allowed on Hainan Island this time around. Barry Peterson, CBS News, Tokyo.

[SUPER=03-Vinton/Salem vs. William Byrd; :00]

The Terriers were psyched up and confident they could protect their home turf at Bob Patterson Stadium. We pick up the action in the 1st half, as Julia McConnell takes the pass from Tiffany Gruschow (GROW-CHOW). But Raven Stovall is too quick on her feet, and she makes a key save on the shot. The first half ends in a scoreless tie. Salem's Ariel Thompson, will later feed Elizabeth Kier. She will shoot for the net, but also gets stonewalled by Byrd goalie Mandi (PEA-UH-CHECK). And it's still 0-0 in the second.
[SUPER=34-Salem/1/William Byrd/0;]

Salem would finally break the ice-- Cassie Houff goes in un-assisted and her shot just makes it in the corner of the net. Salem wins the Blue Ridge war 1-to-nothing.
