A Brazilian federal prosecutor has charged three people in connection with a plane crash that killed 199 people.
TAM Flight 3054 landed in driving rain at Sao Paulo's Congonhas airport in July 2007, speeding down the runway and crashing into a gas station and air cargo building.
The website of the prosecutor's office says Tuesday that charges have been filed against the former director of Brazil's National Civil Aviation Agency, Denise Abreu. Also charged are former TAM vice president Alberto Fajerman and against Marco Aurelio dos Santos de Miranda e Castro, the airline's former safety director.
The prosecutor's office says the three are to blame for allowing use of an runway that was unsafe due to a faulty drainage system.
