FARMER FINDS KEY PART FROM DC-10 CRASH

A farmer harvesting corn found a key engine part from the United Airlines DC-10 jumbo jet that crashed last summer in Iowa, killing 112 people. The part could provide clues to the July 19 crash. Janice Sorenson said she was driving a combine in a cornfield when she struck ``something sharp.'' It turned out to be an engine rotor fan disk, which has been so highly sought that General Electric Company put up a $50,000 reward for its return.
