Continental Airline Cleared of Concorde Crash

Continental Airlines were cleared by the court for the Crash of the Concorde that left 113 people dead. Also the mechanic of the Aircraft was cleared for man slaughter. The crash came about when a piece of metal had fallen of the Concorde which the air craft then ran over which caused the tyre to explode sending pieces of rubber to the fuel tanks which ignited and caused the crash.

2 years ago both the mechanic and the airline was found guilty in which the airline was ordered to coff up £2.7 million to pay for what happened. But since they have been cleared they only have to pay around £1 million in penalties.

The mechanic was also cleared as it was impossible for him to imagine the consequences of his mistake by putting in the wrong piece of metal so he was rightly found not guilty.
