Continental Airlines, mechanic guilty in Concorde crash

The fiery crash that brought down a Concorde supersonic jet in 2000, killing 113 people, was caused partially by the criminal negligence of Continental Airlines and a mechanic who works for the company, a French court ruled Monday, according to CNN. Continental Airlines was fined EUR 202,000 euros and ordered to pay EUR 1 M to Air France, which operated the doomed flight. Mechanic John Taylor received a fine of EUR 2,000 and a 15-month suspended prison sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
