Search narrowed for Flight 5191 Memorial designer

The field is narrowed in the search for a professional artist to design a community memorial to honor the victims of Comair Flight 5191.

49 people died in the crash at Lexington's Blue Grass Airport in August 2006.

A permanent memorial is planned at Lexington's Arboretum on Alumni Drive.

The Flight 5191 Memorial Commission received submissions from 45 professional artists and landscapers for the creation of the memorial.

Now, five finalists will be required to submit their complete concepts by Friday.

They will later have to give formal presentations.
