France: Airbus: Rollout of A340-600 its longest and largest airliner yet.
TAPE_NUMBER: EF/01/0297 IN_TIME: 00:33:50 LENGTH: 02:59 SOURCES: VNR RESTRICTIONS: FEED: SCRIPT: English/Nat XFA Airbus Industrie rolled its new A340-600 out of the factory on Friday, hailing the latest in its fleet of long-range planes as its "longest and largest airliner yet." The A340-600, one of two new long-haul models launched in 1997, is expected to begin commercial flights in 2002. The plane, shown on Friday to customers and suppliers at Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, marks the European consortium's latest attempt at beating rival Boeing in the battle for the skies. With trampolining, trapeze artists and performers on stilts, spectators were wowed with an artful acrobatic display to mark the occasion. And dazzling potential customers is precisely the desired effect. With the capacity to hold 380 passengers in three classes and cruise 13,900 kilometers (8,630 miles) nonstop, Airbus says the A340-600 will be Airbus' largest four-engine wide body. It will be powered by Trent 500 Rolls-Royce engines. However, Boeing's 777-200, part of its popular long-haul fleet of 777s, still surpasses its Airbus competitor in range, cruising 16,443 kilometers (10,195 miles) nonstop. But it holds a smaller passenger load of 305. Airbus' A340-500, which will seat 313 passengers with a flying range of 16,000 kilometers (9,920 miles), is also expected to begin commercial flights in 2002. Together, the consortium says the two new Airbus planes have 127 firm orders and commitments from 11 customers. Currently, Airbus' largest commercial jet is the A340-300, which seats 295 and flies 13,500 kilometers (8,370 miles). At the moment, Boeing's biggest jet is the 747-400, which can carry 416 passengers. Airbus has been gradually closing the gap with Boeing since its creation in 1972 and last year reported significantly more aircraft orders for the first time. When Airbus' mammoth A380 - its much touted double-decker 555-passenger super jumbo - enters the skies in 2006, it will surpass Boeing's 747 as the world's largest passenger plane. SOUNDBITE: (English) "They are bigger than the current aircraft, they have an even longer range - by the way - the 500 will have the longest of any current or planned airliner, Fly faster, offer still more comfort to your passengers and overall provide greater efficiency and economics." SUPER CAPTION: Noel Foregeard, Managing Director of Airbus Industrie SOUNDBITE: (English) "With the entry of the service of the A340-500 and 600 we'll be represented on 3 of Airbus' programmes and that means that we expect in the year 2002 to be on about 50 per cent of the aircraft that Airbus deliver in that year."

Police searched the Airbus A340 airliner and the luggage of some 300 passengers for six hours after the Olympic Airlines plane landed with a fighter jet escort at Stansted airport north of London on Sunday. But officers found no evidence of a bomb, and the airliner will continue its journey from Athens to New York. Police said «well rehearsed procedures» were followed after an anonymous call to a Greek newspaper said there was a bomb on board Olympic Airlines flight 411 from Athens to New York's JFK Airport. Greek authorities immediately notified the pilot of the call, and he asked for a military escort. Passengers and crew were evacuated within 20 minutes of the flight landing in Stansted. They spent the night at an airport hotel. On returning to the plane, New Yorker Christine Chorowski said she thought the flight back would be fine. Many praised authorities for the way they handled the situation and accepted that once the threat had been received the pilot had no choice but to land the plane.

Wide shot of plane in flight STORYLINE: Airbus A 340-500's competitor, Boeing 777-200LR made a stop at Newark Airport on Monday. The stop was part of a certification programme that includes what the American manufacturer calls its "World Tour." The tour comprises of twenty cities in 54 days. Boeing says that on a typical ultra long range route, such as Dubai- Miami, the 777-200LR can carry 21 more passengers and 22,300 pounds (9.9 kgs) of additional cargo compared to the Airbus A340-500. The company also advertises that the LR uses about 20 per cent less fuel than the European aircraft. According to Boeing, the 777-200LR, nicknamed the Worldliner will be the world's longest ranging commercial airliner, capable of flying 9420 nautical miles in 18 hours. Captain Thomas Imrich flew the plane to Newark. He said that with the help of the large engines and wing, he can reach higher altitudes that make the flight smoother for passengers. Imrich also said that "this airplane can serve virtually any two cities globally non stop". With such a gigantic aircraft (overall length of almost 210 feet or 63.7 metres), Boeing needed a powerful engine. General Electric (GE) designed the plane's engine using composite fan blades which according to Rick Kennedy of GE, reduces a "tremendous amount of weight in the engine". Kennedy said the engine is "the largest and most powerful in the world". The latest addition to the 777 family was unveiled in February 2005. The first Boeing 77-200LR will be delivered to Pakistan International Airlines in January 2006. Five airlines have placed orders for the Worldliner, all non-american companies such as Air India and EVA Air in Taiwan.

Piloted by American captain Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann, the Boeing 777-200LR is flying east from Hong Kong, over North America and is due to land at London's Heathrow Airport, the firm said. Darcy-Hennemann, one of the four pilots who will be flying the Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner that takes off on Wednesday said "I feel really fortunate to be the person chosen to do that task." The flight will take about 23 hours and cover more than 20,300 kilometres (12,586 miles), a Boeing statement said. The plane will have 35 passengers, including Boeing representatives, journalists and customers. The jet plans to fly farther than a Boeing 747-400 that flew over 17-thousand (10,500 miles) from London to Sydney in 1989, the statement said. The record-breaking attempt was part of Boeing's fierce competition with its European rival, Airbus SAS. The 777-200LR Worldliner was designed to compete directly with the popular Airbus 340-500, which has a flight range of 16,700 kilometres (10,380 miles). Boeing expects to deliver the first 777-200LR to Pakistan International Airlines in early 2006, the statement said. Taiwan's EVA Air, Qatar Airways and Air India have also announced orders. Boeing said that Guinness World Records representatives would monitor the flight and attend the landing at London's Heathrow Airport.

Their profligacy has been legendary, from hotels purchased in Singapore, London and Paris to use on frequent trips abroad, to flying in beauty queens from all over the world for parties on yachts. But on Saturday, a playboy prince was selling instead of buying, taking a step toward cleaning up a financial mess that nearly drove the country to bankruptcy. About 10,000 items belonging to Prince Jefri Bolkiah's bankrupt development corporation, Amedeo, is going under the hammer in an auction scheduled to last for six days. The sell-off is expected to raise as much as 80 (m) million Brunei dollars (50 million US dollars), a drop in the ocean of billions owed to local and foreign creditors. More than 500 bidders from around the world gathered inside a former Amedeo factory on Saturday, seeking bargains on gilded toilet paper holders, new fire engines, aircraft simulators, high-grade slabs of marble, factory equipment, crockery and cutlery, and enough chandeliers and lamps to light Versailles. The factory itself is also for sale. The sale opened modestly with a marble bench that fetched 350 Brunei dollars (205 US dollars). A pair of bronze cannons went next for 1,700 Brunei dollars (1,000 US dollars). Auction officials said that more than 900 packages of furniture and fittings were expected to be sold Saturday (11th), before bidding began on more expensive items on Sunday. Amedeo, owned by Jefri, younger brother of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, collapsed under mountains of debts in the Asian economic crisis in 1997-98, nearly driving the tiny country to bankruptcy. For years, Amedeo had been the vehicle for Brunei to put in place much of the modern infrastructure it now has - a sports stadium, international convention centre, golf course, hotels, marina, hospital and roads. The large number of local and international creditors still smarting from fizzled construction projects and dud investments hope to recover at least part of their losses from the auction. Also on offer are simulators for a Comanche attack helicopter, an Airbus A340 and a Formula 1 racing car. The auction has triggered debate among Brunei's 300,000 people - most of whom live on the oil money paid out by the sultan in the form of civil service jobs - over who is to blame for Amedeo's collapse. The auction follows a lawsuit brought against Jefri last year for the disappearance of 28 (b) billion Brunei dollars (16 billion US dollars) from national coffers. In an out-of-court settlement, the prince agreed to return money taken from the national investment agency that was once under his charge. The prince now lives in London and Paris. Creditors have tried, and failed, to serve him with summonses in another multi-million-dollar civil action.

And what we need to see is a genuine response to the overtures of dialogue by the United States Administration and a change of policy approach, so far as Iran is concerned, on its nuclear programme which continues to be the single most significant area of concern so far as Iran's isolation is concerned." 26. Wide of Smith and Skelemani leaving STORYLINE: Iran has directly accused the United States of meddling in the deepening crisis over a disputed presidential election and broadened its media clampdown to include blogs and news Web sites. But protesters took to the streets in growing defiance of the country's Islamic rulers and Iranian expatriates staged protests in several parts of the world. And opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi called for another mass rally on Thursday in defiance of Iran's most powerful figure, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has urged the nation to unite behind the Islamic state. In Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday about 100 Iranians gathered ahead of a match between South Korea and Iran. At least five Iranian football players wore green bands around their wrists or arms during the World Cup qualifying match in an apparent protest against the disputed election at home. The players, including captain Mehdi Mahdavikia, wore green - the signature colour of Mousavi - in an apparent show of support. But by the second half, some had removed the green bands, which are not a regular part of their uniforms, amid speculation that they were ordered by their coach to do so. Mahdavikia kept his band on even during the second half. In Paris, France hundreds of protesters gathered to express their support for the opposition demonstrations in Iran. The protesters sang songs and held banners reading "Where is my vote?" In Rome, Italy about 300 people gathered to show solidarity with the pro-reformist demonstrations in Iran and to express their concerns about the handling of the disputed election results. The demonstration was organised by the Radical Party, a tiny party that champions human rights, and by a leftist newspaper, Il Riformista, or 'The Reformer'. Demonstrators carried banners with messages such as "Where is my vote?" and "Free Iran". Davood Karimi, who is President of the Iranian Political Refugees Association in Italy, said the Iranian elections were "a farce". "Above all we want to say stop such despotic and obscurantist tyranny of the Ayatollahs," he said. In Washington US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said it was for the people of Iran to determine how they resolve the protest surrounding the outcome of the recent disputed election. "The people of Iran deserve the right to have their voices heard and their votes counted. The outcome of any election should reflect the will of the people," Clinton said. However, in her joint appearance with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman she avoided any appearance of endorsing either incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Mousavi, who has called himself the winner of the June 12 election. Clinton also spoke about the State Department's request to the online social networking site that it postpone maintenance so that Iranians could continue using the service to communicate. The White House has denied that move or any other represented meddling by the US, described by state-run media in Iran as "intolerable". White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs said the US is striking the right balance. "Our government's not going to get involved in picking a candidate. Obviously, there is international concern for the way an election was conducted. And, it's being looked into and certainly we believe rightfully so." Gibbs said US President Barack Obama stands by his defence of principles such as the right of people to demonstrate in peace. In Melbourne, Australia, about 300 Iranian expatriates demonstrated peacefully, carrying signs and banners calling for an end to the street violence in Iran and a re-count of the votes. They sang the Iranian national anthem on the steps of the city's Federation Square, and vowed to continue to their protests. Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith spoke about Iran in Australia's capital Canberra, saying the country had to change its policy "irrespective of the outcome of the election." He said Iran's uranium enrichment programme was the "single most significant area of concern so far as Iran's isolation is concerned," and that Iran should respond to the United States' offer of dialogue. Iran has been referred to the Security Council over suspicions it is hiding nuclear activities and fears that it could retool its enrichment programme from making material for nuclear power into producing weapons-grade uranium used for warheads. Iran has repeatedly rejected allegations that it is trying to develop weapons capacity under the cover of a peaceful nuclear programme.

Wide of one of Beijing's main shopping street STORYLINE: The World Bank has raised its 2009 economic growth forecast for China from 6.5 percent to 7.2 percent due to its stimulus-driven investment boom but cautioned it was too soon to say a sustained recovery was on the way. It was raised "largely because of that larger policy stimulus that is larger than expected," the World Bank's Louis Kuijs, who authored the report, said. The 586 (b) billion dollar plan calls for shielding China from the global slump by pumping money into the economy through higher spending on public works. "China will be able to continue to grow at a respectable rate next year but we don't really foresee any very significant pickup in the rate of growth next year," he added. Trade and private investment will remain weak, consumption will slow and a full-fledged recovery has to wait for the global economy and demand for exports to rebound, the Washington-based lender said.

Solmonese speaking STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama signalled to gay-rights activists on Wednesday that he's listening to their desire for greater equality in "a more perfect union" but he didn't give them even close to everything they want, bringing to the surface an anger that's been growing against the president. "We've got more work to do to ensure that government treats all its citizens equally," Obama said in the Oval Office, where he signed a memorandum extending some benefits, such as visitation or dependent-care rights, to the same-sex partners of gay federal employees. But the president's critics saw the incremental move to expand gay rights as little more than pandering to a reliably Democratic voting bloc, with the primary aim not of making policy more fair but of cutting short a fundraising boycott. Obama has refused to take any concrete steps toward a repeal of a policy that bans gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military, even though as a candidate he pledged to scrap the Clinton-era rules. He similarly has refused to step in and block the dismissal of gays and lesbians who face courts-martial for disclosing their sexual orientation, arguing that the only lasting ways would be for Congress to act. Obama said he wants to see the Defence of Marriage Act repealed and in its place a law that would give the partners of gay and lesbian federal employees health insurance and survivor benefits, among other things. "I believe it's discriminatory, I think it interferes with states' rights, and we will work with Congress to overturn it," Obama pledged, flanked by lawmakers and advocates at his Oval Office desk. Without that repeal, Obama's ultimate goal of extending health benefits would have to wait. Even those who joined Obama at the signing recognised it was only a first step to achieve what they were promised. "What the president cannot do, under current law, is to extend health-care benefits to the domestic partners of federal employees; that is something that Congress must do, and so, in order to complete this work, the president must call on Congress to give him the legislation to provide those necessary health-care benefits," said Human Rights Campaign President, Joe Solmonese. Facing fierce anger, Obama approved small changes in benefits available to same-sex couples. For instance, employees' domestic partners can be added to a government insurance programme that pays for long-term conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease. They also can take sick leave to care for a sick partner or non-biological child. Even before Obama signed the memorandum, some agencies had voluntarily offered the benefits Obama guaranteed with his signature. But health care benefits - the ultimate goal for many gay activists - remained forbidden by Congress. Obama sought to paint his memo as a measure that "paves the way for long-overdue progress in our nation's pursuit of equality." Several powerful gay fundraisers withdrew their support from a Democratic National Committee event scheduled for June 25 where Vice President Joe Biden is expected to speak. The leaders' withdrawal from the fundraiser comes after a handful of public missteps that White House officials concede were not handled with the best eye on public relations. The breaking point came last week, when the administration defended the Defence of Marriage Act, which allows states to reject another state's legalised gay marriages and blocks federal Washington from recognising those state-based unions. Overturning it is a top legislative target for gay activists. But Justice Department lawyers used incest as a reason to support the law. Obama on Wednesday again said he was committed to repealing that law but needed lawmakers' help.

Various of bodies recovered from the ocean being taken off helicopter to be transported to mortuary STORYLINE: Autopsies have revealed fractures in the legs, hips and arms of Air France disaster victims, injuries that - coupled with the large pieces of wreckage pulled from the Atlantic - strongly suggest the plane broke up in the air, experts said on Wednesday. With more than 400 bits of debris recovered from the ocean's surface, the top French investigator expressed optimism about discovering what brought down Flight 447, but he also called the conditions - far from land in very deep waters - "one of the worst situations ever known in an accident investigation." A spokesman for Brazilian medical examiners told The Associated Press on Wednesday that fractures were found in autopsies on an undisclosed number of the 50 bodies recovered so far. The official spoke on condition he not be named due to department rules. The six most recently recovered bodies were taken to the mortuary in Recife on Wednesday for identification. The pattern of fractures was first reported on Wednesday by Brazil's O Estado de S. Paulo newspaper, which cited unnamed investigators. The paper also reported that some victims were found with little or no clothing, and had no signs of burns. Searchers from Brazil, France, the United States and other countries are methodically scanning the surface and depths of the Atlantic for signs of the Airbus A330 that crashed May 31 after running into thunderstorms en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. All 228 people aboard were killed. Brazilian Air Force Colonel Henry Munhoz said in a news conference on Wednesday that several body parts, as well as pieces of the plane and luggage were found in the search area by the French amphibian ship, Mistral. Munhoz did not provide further details, and Brazilian Captain Giucemar Tabosa Cardoso said "a significant" number of body parts had been retrieved from the ocean. Still missing are the plane's flight data and voice recorders, thought to be deep under water. French-chartered ships are trolling a search area with a radius of 50 miles (80 kilometres), pulling US Navy underwater listening devices attached to 19,700 feet (6,000 metres) of cable. The black boxes send out an electronic tapping sound that can be heard up to 1.25 miles (two kilometres) away, but these locator beacons will begin to fade after just two more weeks. Without the black boxes to help explain what went wrong, the investigation has focused on a flurry of automated messages sent by the plane minutes before it lost contact; one suggests external speed sensors had iced over, destabilising the plane's control systems. Air France has replaced the sensors, called Pitot tubes, on all its A330 and A340 aircraft, under pressure from pilots who feared a link to the accident. Brazil's Federal Police and state medical authorities in Recife who are overseeing the autopsies said in a statement that two French investigators, a dental expert and a doctor, had been following the examinations as observers since June 10. The French are leading the crash investigation, while the Brazilians are leading the rescue operation.

The shipment was inspected with dogs after an x-ray scan detected abnormalities. "In brief, after opening up the shark carcasses, packages appeared that were perfectly wrapped and sealed in rectangles.

Still photo of barrel monster sculpture STORYLINE: When Joseph Carnevale chopped up three stolen orange and white traffic barrels from a construction site to create a massive sculpture of a roadside monster thumbing a ride, the North Carolina college student said he saw it as a form of street art. Raleigh, North Carolina, police just saw vandalism. They dismantled the 10-foot (three-metre) "barrel monster" and arrested Carnevale. Hundreds of online supporters want the charges dropped and the publicity has turned the history major and part-time construction worker into a local celebrity. Even the construction company has become a fan, and wants the 21-year-old to create a replica of the figure that led to his arrest on June 10. "It's surprising how many people have called attention to it," Carnevale said. The college junior hadn't spent much time planning when he set out the night of May 31 and snatched the barrels from the site near the North Carolina State University campus where he studies. He went back to his Raleigh apartment and in an hour and a half returned to the site to assemble the freshly painted pieces before driving away. What emerged was a hulking figure that seemed to extend a thumb, seeking a ride from passing cars. The next morning Raleigh Police dismantled the creation and took the pieces in for evidence while they searched for the perpetrator. Although photos quickly spread on the Internet featuring the "barrel monster," it was a North Carolina State University newspaper article that offered enough clues to lead police to a Web site that identified Carnevale. Police charged him with larceny and destruction of property, both misdemeanours, and he's scheduled to appear in court next month. Carnevale, an Indianapolis native, prides himself on his street art, but said he's most interested in guerrilla photography - making art and snapping images from restricted locations. His apartment walls serve as a canvas, covered in various hues of paint, with images on the walls and doors of sharks, hollow skulls and even Gandhi. His 1997 Volkswagen Jetta is almost completely covered in hot-glued beer bottle caps. Carnevale has made other street art pieces with stolen barrels, including an alligator and caricatures with small arms. Hamlin Associates, the construction company whose barrels were turned into a monster, doesn't want to press charges and Carnevale is weighing up an offer from the company to reconstruct the monster at their offices in Climax, North Carolina. Raleigh police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan said the charges won't be dropped, despite the company's stance. Carnevale said he's not sure what he'll do next, though he's interested in creating a T-Rex sculpture out of barrels.

Various of Symington lying on ground with cloned dogs climbing on him STORYLINE Scientists in California say they have cloned a dog that helped with the search-and-rescue after the 11 September, 2001, attacks on New York. Five German Shepherd puppies cloned from a dog named Trakr were delivered to owner James Symington, a former police officer from Canada, who now lives in Los Angeles. Before Trakr died in April at the age of 16, Symington entered a competition sponsored by the California company BioArts International that offered to clone a pet dog for free. It usually costs about 144-thousand US dollars to clone an animal. Symington won the competition by writing an essay about Trakr and why his dog was so exceptional. He wrote that he and Trakr travelled to New York after the 9/11 attacks and that the dog helped find a woman who was still alive under the rubble of the collapsed World Trade Center. She was said to be the last survivor found at the site. During his career as a police search-and-rescue dog, Trakr was credited with hundreds of arrests and recovered more than one (m) million dollars in stolen goods. BioArts said it cloned Trakr in collaboration with a laboratory in South Korea and that the procedure was led by the doctor who performed the world's first canine cloning in 2005. In order to clone Trakr, doctors at the lab said they replaced the genes in eggs from unrelated dogs with genes from the German Shepherd, stimulated the resulting "couplets" to develop into embryos, then transferred the embryos to dogs who served as surrogate mothers. After normal pregnancies, the surrogate mums gave birth to puppies that the scientists say are genetically identical to Trakr.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Cameron Dick, Queensland State Attorney General: "Mr. Watson was this month convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to four-and-a-half years imprisonment to be suspended after twelve months. I have formed the view that this sentence is manifestly inadequate and the state will therefore lodge an appeal against the sentence in the Queensland Court of Appeal. The Queensland Solicitor-General Mr. Walter Sofronoff QC will now be briefed to represent the state in this matter which will be heard before the Court of Appeal on a date to be fixed. Mr. Speaker, the authority of the state to appeal criminal sentences is a significant power - it is a power that should be exercised after careful consideration and due deliberation. As this case will now be before the courts, it be inappropriate for me to make any further comment." Channel 7 FILE: Brisbane - 5 June 2009 3.

Various of police on dive boat STORYLINE: Australian prosecutors said on Thursday that they will appeal for stronger punishment for an American man who was sentenced to serve one year in prison for manslaughter in the death of his wife during a honeymoon scuba diving trip. David Gabriel Watson, of Birmingham, Alabama, was sentenced earlier this month to serve one year of a four-and-a-half year sentence for the 2003 death of his wife during a trip to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. He was to stand trial in the Queensland state Supreme Court for murder, which carried a potential sentence of life in prison, until the prosecution accepted the guilty plea to the lesser charge. "I have formed the view that this sentence is manifestly inadequate and the state will therefore lodge an appeal against the sentence in the Queensland Court of Appeal," Queensland Attorney General Cameron Dick told state parliament on Thursday. Christina Mae Watson, married just 11 days, drowned while diving with her husband on the Great Barrier Reef. Her body was found on the ocean floor. Coroner David Glasgow formally charged Watson with murder last June. Glasgow said it was likely Watson killed his wife by holding her underwater and turning off her air supply. The coroner said a possible motive was her modest life insurance policy. Prosecutors said the manslaughter plea was accepted on the basis that the 32-year-old Watson, trained to rescue panicked divers, failed in his duty as her dive buddy by not giving her emergency oxygen. They said Watson allowed his wife to sink to the ocean floor without attempting to retrieve her, and he did not inflate her buoyancy vest or remove weights from her belt. Watson, an experienced diver, had said in videotaped police interviews that 26-year-old Christina, a novice diver, started having trouble a few minutes into their dive. He said he decided to go for help rather than attempt a rescue himself. A fellow diver told Glasgow's inquest last year he saw Watson engaged in an underwater "bear hug" with his petite wife, after which he headed to the surface while she sank to the ocean floor. Watson told police his wife knocked his mask off and then sank too quickly for him to retrieve her.
