2000: Air France Flight 4590, a Concorde supersonic passenger jet, crashes just after takeoff from Paris, killing all 109 aboard and four on the ground. The nose of the jet and pieces of its cabin can be seen here. The crash was the only fatal accident in Concorde's history and helped speed the retirement of the jet, which came three years later.
