Just another suburb these days

Stephen Colbert's family among the dead

The three deceased Colbert passengers were the father and brothers of television actor and comedian Stephen Colbert.

Spelling Correction for CDR John Russell Sopko

The spelling of the last name of the man listed as Cmdr. JOHN RUSSELL SAPKO should be SOPKO. See his personal memorial page at http://www.oneternalpatrol.com/sopko-j-r.html .

Misspelling of passenger name

Your article mentions a surviving passenger, Diane Tracy. Her name is actually Deanne Tracy and she was one of three passengers who initially survived the crash with burns over 90% of her body. She died 6 days later of her injuries. She was my cousin and I was 10 years old when Deanne, 17 years old, was so badly burned and died. Our family was, and still is, devastated by her agonizing death.
