Confirming above posts. Crashed 1 mile west of Blue Grass Airport at Lexington, just took off from Runway 22. All 50 on board may be dead. Probalby a full flight. Crashed just before daylight, just before 7 am local time. Weather good, 6 miles visability, nothing out of ordinary, very little rain.
Sounds bad. Let us hope for the best.

Quoting 767-332ER (Reply 13):
Its a CRJ-100. DL schedule proves it.
10-4 man. Surprised they haven't said it was a 707...muchless a -700.

I'm not sure if I am wondering at this point whether such small details in the face of a tragedy like this really matters, or whether people that blame the media for everything should go to journalism school and see if they can do a better job themselves.
Better idea, if the media bothers someone so much with all of their left-wing, never-get-it-right reporting, maybe some folks should cancel all their magazine subscriptions, shred the newspapers, smash the radio in a million pieces and turn their television set into a decorative planter, then become pyschic so they can read the minds of others and get the facts right themselves

RIP to everyone on this CRJ-whatever --- it is their loss and the loss to their loved ones that really matter right now
