July 3 (Bloomberg) -- Continental Airlines Inc. and two of its employees will stand trial for involuntary manslaughter over the crash of a Concorde jet in 2000 that killed 113 people.

Debris from a Continental DC-10 is blamed for the crash of the Air France Concorde on takeoff from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. The U.S. carrier now faces charges for negligence in maintaining its planes, according to a statement from the office of prosecutor Marie-Therese de Givry in Pontoise, France.

This is an interesting development in the case of the Concorde crash back in 2000, charging the 2 employees with manslaughter.

I can't remember anything like this happening before, though my memory isn't the best these days.


It says that the airline will probably face fines for their negligence which was determined to be the cause of the crash.
