LAGOS, Nigeria - A crane hoisted the tail section of a commercial jet from the smoldering debris of a shattered neighborhood Monday in a search for the dead from a crash that killed all 153 people aboard and an unknown number on the ground. Apartment buildings, small businesses, and roadside shops were smashed to bricks and rubble Sunday when the Dana Air MD-83 plowed into the area about five miles short of Lagos' Murtala Muhammed International Airport. Pilots on the flight from Nigeria's capital Abuja to its largest city, Lagos, radioed the tower that they had engine trouble shortly before the crash, but the exact cause remained unclear.

The 76ers' trip from Chicago to Miami didn't reach emergency proportions, but it wasn't what they expected, either. They couldn't have expected their chartered airplane to blow one of its three engines. They couldn't have expected to make an unscheduled stop in Indianapolis. They couldn't have expected to leave Chicago after Tuesday night's game and not arrive in Miami until 6 a.m. Wednesday. After last night's remarkable performance against the Heat, call it a prelude to a victory.

The USS New Jersey, scheduled to dock in Philadelphia on Nov. 7, will arrive at least three days late, an announcement that sent officials scrambling yesterday to salvage celebration plans. Now, instead of on a Sunday, the famed ship will probably make its way into the Delaware Bay and up the Delaware River to Philadelphia on Nov. 10 - a workaday Wednesday. Progress is slowed because of engine trouble aboard the tug boat that has been pulling the battleship for the last seven weeks.

A Northwest Airlines jet bound for Memphis turned back to Philadelphia International Airport last night after crew members saw fuel flowing from a wing tip, an airline spokesman said. The incident was one of three nationwide involving the airline yesterday. In the other two, flights returned to Minneapolis apparently because of engine trouble. In the Philadelphia incident, airline officials suspect the plane's fuel tanks were overfilled, forcing fuel into a reservoir in the wing tip, Northwest spokesman Bob Gibbons said.

Because Downingtown's fire and police departments have complained of engine problems, the Borough Council has decided to test the quality of fuel used in their cars and trucks. During Wednesday's work session, which lasted less than 30 minutes, Councilman Peter Karahalis said engine trouble could hamper rescues. "The engines are clogging up, and they're losing power when they need it," Karahalis said. The borough is going to analyze the fuel, which is supplied by Zeke's Inc. of Coatesville.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Greg Biffle won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday when leader Jimmie Johnson left the track because of engine trouble with six laps left. Johnson started the race from the back because of an engine change, but made it all the way to the lead and looked as though he had the superior car after passing Brad Keselowski on Lap 191 of 200. But Johnson couldn't hold on, and Biffle took advantage. After Johnson faltered, there was a caution for oil on the track, and Biffle held off Keselowski by 0.416 seconds in the green-white-checkered finish.

Jon Kraut, an experienced pilot, would have never flown his family to its vacation homes in South Carolina if he thought his twin-engine aircraft couldn't make the trip. "He was a very cautious man," said JoAnn Warga, who for several years looked after the Krauts' vacation homes while they were at their primary residence in Ewing Township, N.J. "He would never, ever get in the plane if he didn't think it was safe. " Other friends noted that the Bucks County orthodontist had made many trips without problems.

There was a boom. There was turbulence. And there were more than a few scared players and plenty of tired bodies. This wasn't a rough-and-tumble practice conducted by 76ers coach Jim O'Brien, but the return from an adventurous trip to Indianapolis that took more than 15 hours longer than expected. The Sixers were supposed to return to Philadelphia immediately after Wednesday's 102-90 win over the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse.
