Plane crash this morning

This happend this mornin, someone I know friends were on this flight..




Only the co-pilot lived and he is in critical condition..

Quote:
Forty-nine of the 50 people aboard Delta Flight 5191 were killed when the aircraft crashed this morning shortly after take-off from Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Kentucky, according to the county coroner. Two sources, citing physical evidence from the scene, have told CNN the plane may have taken off from the wrong runway -- one that was half the length of the other.

That is horrible. I hate to fly, and this would be the reason why. Sorry to hear about your friend's friends.

I used to live in Lexington...I've flown out of that airport MANY times. My dad...on the other hand...has been on that exact plane. Scary. We're hoping no one we know was on board.

It's funny, because commercial air travel is safer than driving to the supermarket.

Very sad. I saw this on the news today. They still don't know the cause of it. There was a couple who were just married yesterday and were going on their honeymoon..

Oh god this is so horrible My heart goes out to everyone on board and to their families and friends.

So incredibly sad too about the just married couple. You can't help but to wonder at times why things like this have to happen

Early speculation is that the plane may have taken off of the wrong runway.

Quote:
Two sources told CNN that radar identifying the plane's location shortly before it crashed indicates that it took off from the wrong runway -- one that was 3,500 feet shorter than the other.

The Bombardier Canadian Regional Jet (CRJ)-200 was cleared to take off from runway 22, which is more than 7,000 feet long, the sources said.

Instead, it took off from runway 26, which is 3,500 feet long, the sources said.

That length is "pretty short for that type of aircraft," former National Transportation Safety Board Vice Chairman Bob Francis told CNN.

Lanter confirmed that the crash site was at the end of runway 26 but would not speculate from which runway the flight took off.
Of course, it is still early in the investigation.

So we don't all starve to death from lack of natural resources?

Can someone please tell me why there is a shorter run way and not 2 long ones? Just think of what the children thinking that their mother or nonof the family members were with them..

It's a tiny airport, I don't understand how a mistake like this could have been made.

What they say is that the strip was too short and wasnt suppose to take off on that strip, obviously mis-communication and the strip was way too short for the plane to take off because the plane wasnt that fast, and the plane didnt get that fast, engines screwed up, went on fire in mid air, crashed and killed 49 people and one person alive (co-pilot) and the co-pilot is in critical injuries..I'm making a bet with my dad and he thought when planes go down they fall on their stomach or back, I said they fall front first because that's where all the weight is...Can someone please tell me who is right?

Back to the topic, Im watching CNN and they said they have the actual voice recorders and experts say that they will get an answer of the voice recorder soon..They are doing a meeting tonight and they will inspect everything on the plane, and the actual answers to why it did will be said tomorrow..
