Plans Underway For Permanent Memorial For Flight 5191 Victims

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The families of the victims who died in last summer's Comair plane crash have largely been grieving privately. But some of those talks turn public on Wednesday as community leaders host the first of many discussions about how and where to memorialize the dead.

Although the first meeting is largely organizational and families are invited to attend, some have expressed concern about whether their views will be heard. The commission looking at memorial plans includes representatives from government and charity organizations, Keeneland Race Course and the airport, but so far, no family members.

At least one would like to see a memorial near the Blue Grass Airport crash site, but others suggest that that location would be a regular reminder of the tragedy.
