Nation IN BRIEF : NEW YORK : More Firings Seen in Brown Crash

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Air Force is expected to discipline more officials in the fallout of the air crash in Croatia that killed Commerce Secretary Ronald H. Brown and 34 others in April, Time magazine reported. “There will be other officers disciplined, both higher and lower,” a general was quoted as telling the newsmagazine in its latest edition. On Thursday, the Air Force fired the brigadier general and two colonels responsible for Brown’s plane, saying that after an investigation it had lost confidence in their ability “to continue to effectively discharge their duties.” Time said senior Air Force officials believed some officers might even face criminal charges.
