MAP: The plane was en route from Orlando to Dallas' Love field, when ly after take off, it veered off course and began heading to the northwest. Air traffic control lost contact with the plane and feared the worst - perhaps toxic fumes or loss of cabin pressure.
NARR: So two F-16's fighters were sent up to take a visual look, and at 40-thousand feet, found both pilots incapacitated and no sign of the three passengers. There was little they could do except watch and wait for the plane to run out of fuel. About five hours after it took off, it did, and crashed into a in northeastern South Dakota, killing all five on board.

The state Department of Health wants to remind residents NOW is the best time to get a flu shot.

The department says there has been confusion this year over the start of the flu season. The Centers for Disease Control says there is no conclusive evidence for an earlier than normal start to the season.
Typically it begins in November and runs through March with peaks in December to February.
Since flu shots take one to two weeks to become effective, they are best given in October.

Meanwhile researchers at U-V-A have found a new flu drug is up to 84 percent effective in preventing the flu.

For local golfing fans who make the yearly trek to Greensboro each spring for what is now the Chrysler Classic, Stewart was a mainstay. He nearly always took part in the celebrity pro-am that highlighted the old days when the tournament was simply known as the GGO. Stewart will be known for that sense of humor, his two US open titles, his 1989 PGA championship and his generosity. Last year he gave a half a million dollars to his home church in Orlando. The man who made wearing knickers acceptable was 42 years old.
