Investigators say a bumping and rattling sound was heard on a Continental Airlines plane that veered off a runway and crashed at Denver International Airport on Saturday.
The sound began 41 seconds after the plane started down the
runway. Four seconds later, a crew member called for the takeoff to
be aborted. The recording ends shortly after that, presumably
because the plane slammed into the ground after hurtling off an
embankment. Thirty-eight people were injured.
National Transportation Safety Board spokesman Robert Sumwalt
says investigators have found no problems with the plane's engines,
tires or brakes, but are still not ruling anything out.
