Relatives of passengers killed when a commuter plane stalled and fell into a western New York house five years ago will use the anniversary to acknowledge the outpouring of support they were too grief-stricken to appreciate in the immediate aftermath of the crash.
At 8 p.m. Wednesday, relatives and friends of those killed in the cash will gather at the Zion Lutheran Church on Clarence Center Road in Clarence Center for a memorial service to remember their loved ones.
At 10 p.m., the public is invited to join a candlelight vigil at the crash site on Long street, where the victim's names will be read.
All 49 people on board and a man in the house were killed in the crash. Investigators blame pilot error.
Surviving families have successfully lobbied for safety changes directed at regional carriers. They're promising to stick with their fight to make air travel safer.
The remaining wrongful death lawsuits are scheduled for trial later this year.
