Paul Chapman reports from London that British Airways today grounded its fleet of Concorde supersonic jets, following the example of Air France. British Airways took the step after learning that airline safety officials were about to revoke the plane's airworthiness certificate. Air France stopped flying its Concordes after one of the planes crashed last month outside Paris, killing 113 people.
