Perhaps it was a Pan Am Jetstream?

Sad either way.

Doesn't Colgan operate for US Airways Express?

I hope it's not related to the AMW disaster in CLT......

My prayers go out to all the victims and families..

The reporters must've confused the number of seats with the number of passengers. There were only 2 pilots on the plane.

work here in PVD...Colgan Air (USAirways express, last 2 digits on the acft is "CJ" which is Colgan's) 1900. NO PAX (thank goodness). Sounds like only 2 crew on a ferry flight from HYA-ALB. Location of crash just off the HYA coast. Reports saying it was having trouble right after takeoff.

It was a ferry flight...usairways.com shows no flights between ALB and HYA. I do hope the captain and FO are alright though...

I hate it how sometimes the media makes it out to have not been a horrible event because there were no passengers onboard. Pilots are people with lives, families, etc as well.

very true about the media, I think most of us here in the aviation world feel the same way about the loss of anyone in an aircraft incident, including the crew memebers.
