Investigators are trying to determine whether several “click” sounds on the cockpit voice recorder from the Delta Air Lines jet that crashed last month at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport are sounds of the flight crew setting the flaps prior to takeoff. The Boeing 727 crashed seconds after taking off Aug. 31, killing 14 of the 108 people aboard. The investigation has focused on whether a false flap setting might have kept the plane from gaining altitude.
