Since 8:30 this morning I have had the local news on in my house and they have done nothing today but report on the horrible accident that occured at 6:00am this morning at the Lexington Bluegrass Airport. Many of you may have also heard about this on CNN or other news sources.
49 people were killed today in Lexington, KY after a plane crashed just after take off at 6:07am. Lexington is a small airport and most traffic out of the city is to bring passengers to major hubs for connecting flights. This particular flight was heading to Atlanta. Chances are that those of us in Lexington will either know someone on this flight or will know someone who knows someone who was on this flight. This is the first major domestic air accident in about 6 years.
Please keep the victims and the family and friends the victims of Comair Flight 5191 in your prayers.
