Comair Flight 5191 crashed on August 27, 2006 in Lexington, Ky. It took off from a runway that was much too short, killing 49 people.
The parents of two of the victims have filed wrongful death lawsuits at the U.S. District Court in Kansas City. Paige Winters, age 16, and her riding instructor Thomas Fahey, age 26, were in Kentucky looking for a new horse and returning home on the Comair flight. The lawsuits are against Delta and Comair and mention recklessness, negligence, and/or carelessness by the airlines.
