Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December 3 ,1970 THE LETHBKIDGE HERALD FOUND DEAD Dr. Ham Schmidt Horii, 61, Wes Germany's ambass a d o r to Portugal, and his wife were found dead at their residence in Lisbon, Portugal. The Wesl German Foreign Ministry an nounced in Bonn that they committed suicide. Crash ideas differ TORONTO (CP) A conffic of opinions on the circura stances surrounding the eras! of an Air Canada jetliner with a loss of 109 lives has left an in vestigatin? judge with the knotty problem of preparing report on H tangle of evidence. Adjourning a federal inquiry Wednesday at the close of eigh days of hearings, Air. Justice Hugh Gibson of lie Exchequer Court of Canada said he woul< proceed to wrilo his repor "with all speed." He was told in a final submis sion by the commission counsel B. J. MacKinnon, that if an en gine had broken cleanly away and not taken part of a fue tank with it, the DC-8-63 giant jet would have survived. Mr. MacKinnon said the evi- dence was clear that the plane would have lived through a run- way bounce at Toronto Interna- tional Airport last July 5 if the fuel tank had not ruptured when the engine tore away. Earlier evidence was thai shear bolts were supposed to break cleanly, letting the engine fall. The release of jet fuel anc subsequent explosions from shorting electrical wires blew off the right wing and sent the plane to a crash north of the airport as captain circled for another landing attempt. However, Douglas Laidlaw, counsel for McDonnel-Bouglas of California, the plane's build- ers, said that if an engineer knew the exact way an aircraft would crash he could design a plane to withstand it. "But that's not he said. "You can't design an aircraft for a specific crash. They build in everything they think that the plane will be sub- jected to and then they add a safety factor. "You what de- sign philosophy if an aircraft crashes, it comes apart in the way you intend it." Mr. Justice Gibson was urged to consider recommending sub- stantial modifications to DC-8 passenger jets. There now are 509 DC-8s in service for 44 air- lines with a total of more than tours in the air. Mr. MacKinnon said the evi- dence showed that premature deployment of the jet's ground- spoiler braking system by First Officer Donald Rowland was the most probable cause of the crash. However, air accident investi- gators of the federal transport department, who pieced to- gether the fragments after the crash, cited a number of struc- tural shortcomings and deficien- cies in systems on DC-8s.
