Continental Airlines Flight 3407 Airplane Crash Buffalo, New York

February 13, 2009

At about 10:15 p.m. (EST) on Thursday, February 12, 2009, a Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 twin-engine turboprop airplane, registration N200WQ, operated by Colgan Air, Inc., as Continental Connection Flight 3407 from Newark, New Jersey, crashed into a house during an instrument approach to Buffalo International Airport. All 49 people aboard the aircraft lost their lives and there is a report of at least one ground fatality. The National Transportation Safety Board investigators investigating the airplane crash have recovered the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from the wreckage and continue in their efforts to determine what caused the commuter airplane to plunge out of the night sky near Buffalo, New York, and nose-dive into a house. Updates on the investigation are posted on the NTSB website.
