Doomed US jet's tail fin likely under stress-probe

Doomed US jet's tail fin likely under stress-probe

Quote:
WASHINGTON, Feb 8 (Reuters) - The tail fin of an American Airlines (NYSE:AMR - news) jet was likely under enormous stress before it snapped off the aircraft, which then plunged into a New York neighborhood last year, killing 265 people, investigators said on Friday.

Preliminary engineering and other analysis of the crash of Flight 587 last Nov. 12 shows the Airbus A300-600 was moving straight at 290 mph (465 kph) with its nose pointing 10 degrees left of center. In addition, the plane's rudder was deflected to the right.
