Documentary Debuts On Six Month Anniversary Of Crash


Tuesday marks the six month anniversary of the crash of Comair flight 51-91.

A documentary will debut honoring one of the victims tonight.
"Pat Smith's Habitat Promise" will premiere at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington.

Smith was on his way to help people rebuild after Hurricane Katrina, when the plane crashed just after taking off from Blue Grass Airport.

Smith had served as president of Lexington Habitat for Humanity, and on the international habitat board.

Tonight's film was produced by Travis Jones of Lexington. Jones traveled with Kentucky volunteers to Gulfport, Mississippi last Thanksgiving to complete Smith's building project.

49 people died in the crash.
First Officer James Polehinke is the only survivor.
