With pieces of tail section tearing away and the hydraulic controls of his jumbo jet gone, Capt. Masami Takahama desperately tried to nurse the wildly bucking craft to a safe landing by manipulating power to its four engines, transcripts showed today. But the 49-year-old pilot's special expertise in the technique was not enough, and the Boeing 747 jetliner plowed into a mountain ridge about 70 miles northwest of Tokyo on Aug. 12.

The last time Navy Lt. Bradley Lorenzen saw his wife, Lisa, she was in a wheelchair. So he failed to recognize the thinner, smiling woman who came running toward him at Los Angeles International Airport on his return from a six-month stint in the Antarctic.

At Olympic High, Santa Monica's alternative school for students who have struggled in traditional programs, inappropriate behavior is not uncommon.
