    Continental commuter flight from Newark, 48 on board.

    Unconfirmed report: no survivors.

    Thoughts and prayers to the families of those on board. And J.F. Christ -- this is less than five miles from my mom's house in Amherst.

    Can't see it very well, but there look to be some nasty, nasty photos of the fireball on MSNBC right now.

    Buffalo News via MSNBC: 44 passengers, 4 crew and 1 person on the ground dead.

    Continental flight 3407.

    This is the kind of thing that makes me scared to death to fly. I know all about the odds, but every time I see pictures like what you're talking about, buck, or just read a story like this, it sticks with me forever. Hope those on board suffered as little as possible.

    How big was this plane?

    And this is not exactly the kind of news I need to hear considering I am less than 12 hours from boarding one myself.

    Not a fan of the turboprops. God bless those families.

    It was a turboprop, zag. WGRZ is reporting a Dash-8.

    From the BNIA site: DH4 (de Havilland DHC-8 Dash 8-400 Dash 8Q)

    And my mom + stepdad are on vacation, due to fly back into Buffalo on Sunday. So yeah, my heart skipped a beat when my brother called and said, "Turn on the TV."

    Is it just me or is this a really bad photo/headline/ad combo?

    CNN is running an interview with a guy whose sister was on the flight.
