Last night there was a plane crash at my home airport - Buffalo, NY. A small commuter plane operated by a partner with Continental Airlines, flying from Newark, NJ to Buffalo.
In my early days of working in the US, I flew Continental Airlines between Buffalo and Newark every week for a year...out on Monday morning and back on Thursday night. Upon arrival at the airport, there were always lots of people waiting to pick up arriving loved ones.
I can't imagine how horrible it must have been for them last night. My heart goes out to everyone on the plane, and their families. RIP.
