Continental to appeal Concorde crash guilty verdict: lawyer

6th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

Continental Airlines will appeal a French court's guilty verdict over a deadly 2000 Concorde crash, lawyer Olivier Metzner said Monday, slamming a ruling that "only protects French interests."

The court earlier found the US airline criminally responsible for the crash, caused by a piece of metal that fell from a Continental DC-10 and subsequently shredded the supsersonic jet's tyre, which caused its fuel tank to catch fire.
