We are the family members and close friends of the victims who perished onboard Continental flight 3407 on February 12, 2009. Immediately following the accident many of us gathered in Buffalo looking for answers and trying to come to terms with the grief of losing a loved one in such a sudden and tragic manner.
In the days and weeks following the accident, we came together as a newfound family: looking to each other for support, strength, and a sense of community. As a group, we don’t ever wish to see another family have to endure the pain and suffering we have endured and are therefore committed to promoting positive changes related to aviation safety. We have committed a great deal of time to learning the causes of this accident as well as other areas for improvement in the current aviation industry. Through our unyielding efforts, we have helped influence the passage of PL 111-216, the most comprehensive aviation safety legislative reform in history.
Although we have made great progress in our efforts thus far, we will continue to push for the effective and complete implementation of new safety regulations. All of our current efforts will be published on this site, so please check back frequently.
