Concorde makes

emergency landing

A Concorde carrying pop stars El-
ton John and Pete Townshend devel-

Oped engine trouble over the Atlantic
yesterday, forcing it to make an emer-
gency landing in eastern Canada.

The supersonic British Airways jet,
en route to New York from London,
landed smoothly on three engines
after the pilot shut down the fourth
one, a spokesman for the airport in
Halifax said.

Passengers continued their flight
on a Boemg 747.
