Plane crash in U.S. kills 49

28 August 2006

A Comair passenger jet that mistakenly took off on a short runway crashed into a woody field on Sunday, killing all but one of the 50 people aboard. An initial examination of the flight recorders, or so-called black boxes, indicated that the pilots of the Bombardier Canadair jet used a 3,500-foot runway – much shorter than is typically required for a fully loaded aircraft of that type – instead of one twice that length that is perpendicular to the shorter runway and is used most by commercial jets at the Blue Grass Airport.
