Dear Capt Lim,

The crash at Buffalo with a 2 engine propeller aircraft - 50 dies unfortunately.

Question: Which airline was involved? What type of aircraft was involved?

Thank you.

Greetings

Blum


Continental Airlines Plane Crash at Buffalo



Hi Blum,

The crash (see news report here) that occurred about 6 miles from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport involved a Continental Connection Flight flying in from Newark, New Jersey. The aircraft was a 74-seat Q400 Bombardier and it was operated by Colgan Air, based in Manassas, Va. Colgan's parent company is Pinnacle Airlines of Memphis.

The Bombardier aircraft was registered last April. It was a next-generation and very modern turbo-prop plane. Bombardier spokesman Marc Duchesne said the plane was put into service very recently and is only a few months old. It was the first fatal crash involving a Dash 8 Q400 aircraft.

It was suspected that icing may be the cause of the accident. We will await the official findings once the investigation is over.
