    I just woke up this morning to the most horrible news!!!!!!
    There was a Continental Airlines flight going to Buffalo, NY that crashed into a home last night.
    They are still uncertain why.
    There were high winds yesterday & below freezing weather in the sky.
    As a flight attendant this just gives me a HuGE not in my stomach.
    My prayers go out to the crew and passengers and families that are involved in this!

      Oh my goodness, that's horrible! And they were just saying after the USAir emergency landing how long it's been since a US plane had any passengers die in a plane crash. Those poor families.

          I think I'm going to turn off the news right now.
          All I can think about is their families.
          My FI was watching with me & they were interviewing families that had loved ones on board.
          Sooooooo sad.

            This is the saddest/scariest thing ever! I've flown between Buffalo and NYC/NJ a number of times. I'm so sad for everyone involved...what a tragedy

                I live here in Buffalo and it is a somber day here. Our local stations have nothing on but news about the crash. From the crash site I actually live a good 20 -30 min. It is very sad. I already know of 2 families that I know that had a family member on that plane.

                  My husband's coworker was on the plane. Also, the man who died in the house worked for my husban's company. Two men from the same company were killed, so sad.
