It was about 60 miles toward its Yarmouth and Halifax, Nova Scotia destination when the incident occurred, said Mike Ciccarelli, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman. It was a miracle no one was sucked out, Ciccarelli said. The tail cone fell off and an emergency escape door in the bulkhead blew out, leaving a door-size hole in the rear fuselage, he said. Flight attendants had to hold on tight and thank goodness nobody was near there. A liquor cart which was in the area was blown out of the airplane, Ciccarelli said. The cockpit door was bent off its hinges. Cabin pressure dropped within seconds and passengers were told to use their oxygen masks. Robert Babineau, 31, of Barre, Mass., s aid, "We heard a big bang. Part of the plane was missing. I was in the 16th row, and I could see all the blue sky you want. Berty Martin of Syracuse, N.Y., said, it sounded like a bomb. There was a hole where the tail column was supposed to be. After we heard the bang, ev-erything started blowing around, said Ellen John, 25, of Taunton, Mass. The food just flew in every direction. I was scared. The pilot was directed by the FAA radar center at Nashua, ENDANGERED SPECIE A 1,200 pound dead female leatherback turtle which washed ashore on Long Beach Island, N.

Richard Pound, a spokesman for the college, located in Marple Township, said classes would start Wednesday morning for 6,000 students. Instructors have been on strike since August 27.

And 160 special education teachers walked out in the Midwestern Intermediate Unit 4, which serves 27 school districts in Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties. But the Unit 4 walkout apparently did not keep all children from attending school. Dale Smith, superintendent of the Southwest Butler School District, said the units six special education teachers who normally teach in his districts schools were replaced by substitutes. Only 17 children who attend Clarence Brown School for special students id Butler were told sto stay home, Smith said. been determined no explosives were involved in the accident. Offhand I cant recall having this malfunction hpen before, said Ray ffry, a spokesman for McDonnell Douglas Corp., which manufactured the aircraft.

Penguins Baffle Scientists PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa (UPI) Four penguins staggered ashore on their island home after swimming 500 miles through gales and stormy seas in a journey scientists say is baffling. The exhausted birds, who arrived home last week, were among 150 penguins who were airlifted to Cape Town in July from St. Croix island off the Port Elizabeth coast to be treated for oil pollution. The birds were tagged and later released on Robben Island near Cape Town some 500 miles from their old home. I saw them stumble ashore like drunks, said Rod Randall, a zoologist at Port Elizabeth University. They found their way like homing pigeons, he said. It is amazing."
