    I was in downtown buffalo at my friends dorm and it pops up on the news.. I called my family and some friends everyone is good. Someone did however die on the ground. Some of my friends went there to see the site, I dont like exploiting death for the point of gossip but it was hectic, Clarence is such a nice suburb to. The airport is only about 1 minute from where it crashed (1 minute in the air not to drive) so I guarantee they where landing and maybe even had his landing gears down.

    well it is technically, the amount of plane crashes there are compared to car crashes is miniscule

    think in a car driving down the road youre going past oncoming cars and the gap between your's and their wingmirrors is sometimes barely inches, but in a plane you got the whole sky.

    maybe not such a good example considering that collision over Wales the other day which killed those school girls...

    the flames are huge... its 4am here and the fire dept (we have excellent emergency response here in western ny) has done a great job settling the flames down. We have a fire dept in every neighborhood. I'm not scared, just very upset for the people who lost their lives and their families. All the people in the Buffalo airport right now crying because their loved ones didn't make it, it really upsets me. RIP

    Yeah but plane crashes always result in the deaths of everyone aboard the plane -- unlike car crashes. If you drive off the highway you at least have a good chance to make it, but if your plane crashes you're as good as dead. That's what safety's all about, right? Increasing the likelihood of surviving an accident...

    Gilbo's been using that avatar longer than you have, not that it matters. Welcome back Gil, longtime no see.

    I imagine they'll call the safety record of the plane into question too. Dash 8's have a good safety record as far as I know. It's too bad for all those people.

    Not too long ago I saw the same thing. I live near an air base and jets fly over all the time. There was only one pilot in the jet and he ejected safely and survived, but the plane crashed into a residential area.

    The crash only killed 3 people, but it was the grandmother, wife, and baby of one man who was out of the house at the time. Just thinking about the devastation of losing your entire immediate family in 1 second is depressing. The plane crash was definitely within a mile of my apartment complex.
