Comair CRJ-100 Plane Has Crashed In LEX

Sun Aug 27, 2006 8:58 pm

CNN is reported a plane crash at LEX. I'm in my hotel in YUL so I won't be able to find a link. They are not sure of the carrier yet.

I am flying today so hopefully this crash won't affect mine. (YUL-YYZ)

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.

It looks like it would be DL Flight 5191 from LEX to ATL with a scheduled departure time of 6:00AM.

Hope things will turn out ok but it doesn't sound good.

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

Well, according to NBC, the flight took off runway 22L and was carrying over 80 pax...and this was by an "aviation expert."

Yes, it's sad when I see my coworkers perish. But honestly, careless reporting is just not necessary, especially by a so called expert.

You must be so proud of your repsonse, Les..

When some Stations show an A310 when they are referring to a B767, it is always nice to get a correction, JUST IN CASE, the CRJ-700 that they have referred to, turns out to be a B777 or A340.

Thanks for all others who are keeping the rest of us FACTUALLY updated.

WLEX (NBC in LEX) is reporting that the pilot may have taken off from Runway 26 (much shorter, maybe 3500 feet). Still unconfirmed, but there is early speculation that the pilot took off from the wrong runway. He was, of course, supposed to use runway 22. That's a much longer runway.

LExington Police PIO is reporting though that he thinks that runway is closed for repaving.

WAY, WAY to early for that kind of speculation, but that's the early reports from WLEX.

At least one person apparently survived the crash and taken to a nearby hospital. We will have to wait for further possible survivors, although it doesn't look good.

Hmmm, might be feasible, given the layout of the airport.

I was just thinking last night how it has been so long since there has been an aviation accident with a large nubmer of fatalities in the US. I couldnt remember the last not including 911. Was it Alaska Airlines flight that crashed near Santa Barbara?

I am not watching the news right now because it is all just mindless speculation.

I remember when a crossair ARJ crashed in ZRH and the media kept referring to the aircraft type as a "Jumbolino". When the CO DC-10 lost a metal part causing Concord to crash, the media initially referred to the CO plane as a "MD-80 Widebody"

If they are this wrong about simple aviation facts, makes you wonder what else they get wrong, intentionally or not. (HINT: Middle East Conflicts)

Surely that can't have been an issue in this accident though, unless the FMC did something? But lets leave the cause to the FAA. It may just be facts leading up to it, which may have some effect in the long-run, but I'd have thought that an incorrect runway would have caused an accident in a closer viscinity to the airport - an overshoot etc...?

RIP, and our hearts are with all involved.

There was the AA A300 near JFK not long after 9/11 (I think it was like AA587). Then there was the thousands of posts here about whether it was pilot error or a faulty tail design...

Hmmm, more news on the Runways at LEX . . .

Apparently, the main runway, 22, was just reopened after paving. Did perhaps the Comair pilot not know this?

Of course they knew this. They just flew in there last night. I'm pretty sure they would remember landing the night before.
LEX was closed all last weekend for paving. This is the only usable runway for CRJs there.
