The pilots of a U.S. Marine jet that sliced a ski gondola's cables in northern Italy in 1998, killing 20 people, acted as "criminals," an Italian parliamentary commission said. The panel said the U.S. chain of command at Aviano Air Base, where the airmen were deployed, was responsible. "It's a shame that these two criminals--because this is what they are--were acquitted," Ermanno Iacobellis, who headed the 25-member commission, said of the pilots. A U.S.

Snow still clung to the midnight crags above the village of Cortina d'Ampezzo when we drove in from Venice on the first day of May. Golden light swept the streets of that Dolomite fastness, where Italy was host to the 1956 Winter Olympics; bells pealed fervently from a stone campanile, tolling far beyond the hour as if to honor each shuttered hostelry resting in off-season peace.

Strapped into the cockpit of his EA-6B Prowler jet, he banked the wing, rolled hard to the left and dropped the nose, but even those maneuvers were not enough to avoid the impact. He heard a light thud as one wing and the upper part of the tail hit something and then, pulling the plane up, he again saw blue sky.
