2nd anniversary of Flight 5191 crash - WDRB 41 Louisville News

2nd anniversary of Flight 5191 crash

It's a tragic anniversary Wednesday for the families of those killed in the Comair crash at Lexington's airport.  Flight 5191 crashed, killing 49 people after attempting to take off from a runway that was too short.

Co-pilot James Polehinke was the sole survivor of the crash.

Many of the families who lost loved ones are thanking the Kentucky community, who they say helped them deal with their loss.

A widow says the families agreed the second anniversary should not just focus on the mourning, but also on finding ways to give back to those who helped them throughout the biggest tragedy of their lives.
