Triad International Maintenance Corporation, the company that was overhauling the Airborne Express cargo plane that crashed Sunday night into a Giles County
mountainside--- is now launching its own investigation.


The plane reportedly had experienced trouble Saturday, forcing pilots to scrap a test run-- one day before the deadly crash near Narrows.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Giles Co./Monday;


A Greensboro television station reports trouble with the hydraulic system caused the plane to drop a mile in altitude, so pilots turned the plane around and returned to North Carolina.
Federal officials say the Airborne Express D-C-Eight was 20 minutes into a maintenance test flight Sunday when it fell into a steep dive.
The pilot reportedly made a distress call just before the crash.
Six people died.
The investigation is scheduled to pick back up tomorrow.

No one watching knew quite what to make of it..the Peruvian President's daughter arrived at the compound Christmas Day...with turkeys intended for the rebels and more than 100 hostages stuck inside.
Alberto Fujimori's daughter Keiko wanted to go inside to see her uncle and the others...but could not.
A Peruvian Archbishop did make it inside for a Christmas celebration..all this folows two significant events from the day before.
Rebels freed the uruguyan ambassador...after officials in that country freed a pair of Tupac Amaru rebels.
Officials in uruguay deny there's a connection but apparently the Peruvians don't like it a bit and recalled their ambassador to Uruguay.
What no one can deny though..is that this city that sits on the pacific coast..splashed with waves that wash in from the east..is facing some social turmoil.
The Tupac Amaru wants to restructure the economy..and its not hard to find folks who say they're right-- that too much foreign investment is hurting the nation.
And that a President with a Japanese surname is just one more indication that Peruvians have lost control of their country.
It's also not tough to find people who say Alberto Fujimori is just as Peruvian as anyone else born here and that foreign investment means jobs. ERNESTO MENDOZA/PERUVIAN NATIVE AND THATS A VERY GOOD THING FOR THE ECONOMY OF THE COUNTRY.. CLSO BEDAURRE/PERUVIAN NATIVE/VOICE OF TRANSLATOR HE SAYS THAT JAPANESE INVESTMENT IN PERU IS VERY GOOD.
It gives Peruvians a lot to think about this holiday season..spiritual and social matters combined in a complex mix. standup
The bottom line for the hostages is Christmas means captivity with no hint that they will be home before the holidays are over.
