Runway Mistake Suspected in Taiwan Jet Crash, Officials Say
Early evidence suggests that the Singapore Airlines jet that crashed during takeoff in heavy wind and rain here Tuesday night, killing at least 81, may have been barreling down the wrong runway and hit construction materials, Taiwans air safety agency said Thursday night. The runway in question, adjacent and parallel to the intended path, was closed for construction and littered with concrete blocks and heavy equipment at the time of the accident. It was also lit, though it was not supposed to be, which could have made a pilot error easier to occur in the dim visibility. Officials said they were trying to determine whether the runway was lit by mistake. Singapore Airlines continues to deny that its pilot made any error. Soong Kuo-yeh, a prosecutor at the district office in Taoyuan County, where the Chiang Kai-shek Airport is located, said in a television interview today that it was clear that the plane had mistakenly been on the wrong runway, The Associated Press reported. The pilot, who survived, said he had seen an object in front of the Boeing 747 jumbo jet just before lifting off and tried to avoid it but could not. The jet, carrying 159 passengers and 20 crew members, veered to the side, split into three pieces and burst into flames. Other theories for the cause of the accident include shifting winds and the possibility that objects had blown onto the proper runway and the airplane careered onto the side route after impact. But at Thursday nights news conference, Kay Yong, managing director of Taiwans Aviation Safety Council, said it appeared the aircraft had been traveling straight ahead when it first made impact. And he confirmed that concrete blocks on the closed runway were hit by the plane. Earth excavators at the site were also mangled, but it was not yet clear at what point in the crash they were hit. Despite the fierce winds and poor visibility at the time of the crash, officials are adamant that the weather conditions at the airport met guidelines for takeoff. Mr. Yong stressed that the investigation was continuing and said his agency planned to give more detailed conclusions today after more interviews with possible witnesses and flight dispatchers. We dont rule out any possibilities, including that the pilot may have mistakenly attempted to take off from the wrong runway, Mr. Yong said. Local newspapers also reported that pilots from other aircraft waiting to take off at the time of the accident said they witnessed the Singapore Airlines jet go on the wrong runway, but these pilots were not identified or quoted directly. Today the death toll rose to 81 as two more severely burned victims died. At least 24 of the dead were Americans. Relatives of foreign victims continued to arrive in Taipei to undertake the grim task of identifying remains. The bodies were moved Thursday evening from a makeshift morgue at the airport to a nearby county morgue. But many were too badly burned for identification and officials were taking blood samples from relatives to assist in DNA analysis. Tonight, experts from the United States Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board were meeting with officials from Taiwan, Singapore and Boeing and from Pratt & Whitney, the engine maker, to examine the evidence on the crash.. Taiwans air safety agency says early evidence suggests Singapore Airlines jet that crashed during takeoff in heavy wind and rain may have been barreling down wrong runway and hit construction materials; says runway in question, adjacent and parallel to intended path, was closed for construction and littered with concrete blocks and heavy equipment; says runway was lit, which could have made pilot error easier to occur in dim visibility; Singapore Airlines continues to deny its pilot made any error; pilot, who survived, has said he saw object in front of jet just before lifting off and tried to avoid it but could not; death toll from crash rises to 81 as two more severely burned victims die (M)

With the arrival last month of the northeast monsoon, and the consequent ebbing of the smoky haze from Indonesian forest fires that has plagued the region since August, Singaporeans are breathing a collective sigh of relief. In addition to causing immeasurable pulmonary suffering, the haze contributed to maritime accidents and disrupted tourism and commerce. Singapore generally prides itself as being the very model of a modern major metropolis, and stands poised to lead its sometimes chaotic Southeast Asian neighbors into the 21st century. Everything seems to work: Traffic is sane, mass transit is clean and efficient, food, water and air quality are usually high. Its citizens enjoy a high level of employment, health benefits, good housing and an atmosphere of orderliness that, although it comes at a considerable price, provides a feeling of security..

Postpunk Power and Pugnacity, via Iceland
In the balmy sunshine on Saturday afternoon at Central Park Summerstage, Henrik Bjornsson of the band Singapore Sling stuck to his lyrics and sang, Its so cold outside. Its probably a more appropriate sentiment when the band is at home in Iceland. Singapore Sling was headlining a bill with three Icelandic bands that were trolling rocks past. Between sets Steindor Andersen sang the unaccompanied traditional songs called rimur. Weather reports aside, Singapore Sling sounded at home in New York. It played basic, brooding rock songs with three guitarists creating a distorted drone around Mr. Bjornssons gruffly jaded voice. In songs from The Curse of Singapore Sling (Stinky), he sang about desire and alienation with unironic bluntness: Aint no good for nothing at all/And I like it..
