    Plane Crash....

    I was trying to follow the details but they keep changing them.
    I think its ConAir 191, Lexington to Atlanta.


    BlueGrass Airport, Lexington, Ky.

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A Comair flight carrying 50 people crashed a mile from Lexington's airport Sunday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
    FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said local authorities have indicated there are significant fatalities. A team from the National Transportation Safety Board is en route to the crash scene, she said.

    Comair Flight 191, a CRJ-100 regional jet with 47 passengers and three crew members, crashed at 6:07 a.m. shortly after taking off, Bergen said.

    Comair is a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines based in the Cincinnati suburb of Erlanger, Ky.

    I was reading an online MSNBC report and one of the sentences was a comment from the first responders that there were no survivors. I went back to get the link and that comment wasn't there any longer.

    VERY sad. I'm glad it wasn't a bigger plane with more people, but so very, very sad. Praying for the families.

    They are saying the pilot may have used the wrong runway.

    so, am I right on this?

    The plane never made it into the air?

    could it have been struck by lightning? An eyewitness on Fox just said he saw a flash of light and then an explosion and smoke.

    I heard it was at several hundred feet when it went down...so probably was 200-300 feet up....this is why I hate taking off when I fly...HATE it. I hate that feeling of being suspended at that incline and watching the ground drop away. Poor people.
