    re: US airline Continental on trial for Concorde Paris crash (AFP)

    A former French civil aviation official and two senior members of the Concorde programme will be tried on the same charge from Tuesday in a court near Paris, with proceedings expected to last four months.

    The trial will seek to pin down the share of responsibility of the US airline, the Concorde and French aviation officials. Most of the victims' families agreed not to take legal action in exchange for compensation from Air France, EADS, Continental and the Goodyear tyre manufacturer. The amount they received has not been made public, but reports said that around 100 million dollars was shared out among some 700 relatives of the dead.
