All signs point to mechanical failure as the cause of the fatal American Airlines crash in New York.
Federal safety investigators say they've gotten good information from the cockpit voice recorder of Flight 587.

They report hearing no distress call from the plane.
Officials caution that it's ``way too early'' to connect yesterday's crash with engine failures.
But a month ago, safety officials concluded there was an unsafe condition in the type of engine that powered the plane.
Investigators also are combing eyewitnesses accounts, including one from a commercial pilot on the ground.
At least 265 people were killed.
Jennifer Jones has an update from New York.

CREWS WORKED THROUGH THE NIGHT -- RECOVERING THE WRECKAGE OF AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 587.
AFTER AN INITIAL REVIEW OF THE PLANE'S COCKPIT VOICE RECORDER, FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS SAY EVERYTHING POINTS TO ACCIDENTAL MECHANICAL FAILURE -- AND NOT TERRORISM -- AS THE CAUSE OF THE CRASH.

(SOT: GEORGE BLACK/NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD) -- 22:38:26

"There's no evidence on it to indicate a problem not associated with an aviation accident. It is good quality data."
THE PLANE -- DESTINED FOR THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC -- WENT DOWN IN A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD MONDAY MORNING -- JUST MINUTES AFTER TAKE OFF FROM NEW YORK'S JFK AIRPORT.
ALL 260 PEOPLE ON BOARD WERE KILLED -- ALONG WITH OTHERS ON THE GROUND.
RESIDENTS SAY PARTS OF THE JET BROKE OFF -- AND THEN IT NOSE-DIVED. THE PLANE'S ENGINE FELL ON A GAS STATION BLOCKS AWAY.

Staley recommends a yearly event.. perhaps a fair or concert ... something to bring in a crowd.
She also recommends a multi-year public image campaign that could lead to 275 thousand dollars worth of ads.
Wishneff says Allegheny County has all it needs to succeed... like a multi-million dollar shell building that's empty... and world renowned manufacturers like Westvaco.
