Bomb kills Miami soldier in Iraq

Published May 31, 2007
An Army soldier from Miami was killed in Iraq by an improvised bomb, the military said Wednesday.
Pfc. Junior Cedeno Sanchez, 20, died Monday in Baghdad, the Defense Department said. The device exploded near him during a patrol.
He was assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division out of Fort Lewis, Wash.
Sanchez, who joined the Army in November 2005, was posthumously promoted from the rank of private first class.
Airline faulted in fatal '05 crash
A federal safety board in Washington, D.C., blamed faulty repair of a wing crack and weak federal regulation for a seaplane crash that killed 20 people in 2005.
All five National Transportation Safety Board members were highly critical of the management of financially troubled Chalk's Ocean Airways, whose 58-year-old Grumman G-73T Turbine Mallard crashed Dec. 19, within sight of the Miami skyline.
"It glares at you that this was a poorly operated airline, " board chairman Mark Rosenker said.
The twin-engine seaplane lost its fuel-laden right wing and then exploded shortly after takeoff from Miami en route to Bimini Island.
