Two-year anniversary of Comair Flight 5191 crash

Wednesday night, the families of those who died in the Comair crash in Lexington will mark the sad anniversary.

Flight 5191 crashed two years ago after taking off from a runway that was too short.

49 people were killed.  Co-pilot James Polehinke was the sole survivor.

Wednesday night's memorial is at 7 p.m. at the Mitchell Fine Arts Center at Transylvania University in Lexington.

Governor Steve Beshear has also ordered flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff to mark the anniversary.
