 Second Update on NTSB Investigation into the Crash of Comair Flight 5191

On August 27, 2006, about 6:07 a.m., Comair flight 5191, a Bombardier CRJ-100, (N431CA) crashed upon takeoff from Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Kentucky. Of the 47 passengers and 3 crewmembers onboard, 49 were fatally injured and one (the first officer) survived in critical condition.

The Board will not hold a public hearing on this investigation. The public docket is expected to open in January 2007. It will contain the cockpit voice recorder transcript, flight data recorder information and the other group factual reports including interviews.

A public Board meeting will be held late spring or early summer, at which time the Board will consider a final report on the investigation and will include the determination of the probable cause and potential safety recommendations.
