On Feb. 12, 2009, Flight 3407 crashed near my house. I wrote the song "3407" about the crash and you can download it on iTunes or amazon under "Mark Weber 3407" or "Mark Weber Days Like These."

What a tragedy! Please receive my condoleancies. I just assist a history of fly 3407 on the History Channel. All of companies are irresponsables... This year, for example, i was flying with a plane of TAM Brasil, the chief-pilot left a apprentice make a atterissage and almost kill 146 passengers. That must stop.

I have photos of my aunt and uncle, Ron and Linda Davidson when they were here in California visiting. They perished on this flight, going back home to Westfield, NY. I look at their pictures everyday and it feels like they're still here, with us. I can hear their voices, their laugh and our last conversations. Many years of memories. Our loved ones will always live on through us. We live for us and we must also live for them.

Every year - on 9/11 - I think of you, Karen... and your beloved sister, Beverly and brother-in-law. Thank you for all of the tremendous amount of work your family has done for aviation safety. I, for one, so appreciate it and please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am watching the Frontline story again. It reminds me of how lucky I am and how screwed up the airline industry is. I had taken 3407 many times before but luckily, for me, not on this tragic day. As a Niagara Falls, Ontario resident I prefer Buffalo over Toronto for my airport of choice. I switched to Continental for flying from North America to Hong Kong several years ago. As a result this flight was a standard flight home for me. I blame Continental and the other major airlines for burying their head in the sand (while knowing full well the truth) on regional carriers and the lack of funds required to run a partner airline above board. 3407 used to be a joy for me. It was the last hour of a 24 hour travel day home for me. And I always seemed to be on the flight with a fantastic, charismatic, funny and slightly sarcastic (a quality that I love) stewardess. I never see her anymore and I hope that her light was not cut short that day. My heartfelt sympathies to all of you who lost loved ones that tragic day. Shameful practices throughout the entire airline industry.

I thank you for all the great work you are doing in memory of your loved ones. You have made a difference in this industry. My employer, a Part 135 air charter company, has for many years required our First Officer applicants to have an ATP certificate, 2,000 hours total flight time, and 500 hours multi-engine pilot-in-command -- and that's just to get an interview. Meanwhile, my former Major Airline is trying to use bankruptcy to outsource even more flying to the lowest bidder, and supporting A4A in trying to dilute the final FAA rules. Don't give up the fight! You are a powerful voice for what is right!

I just saw the documental on TV, God, how sad i feel, how abuse of companies can lead to such similar situations, all of them (the companies, in this case airlines) blame the economy, but there is always something else to do BEFORE accidents like this happen. (everybody can drive a car in a plain straight street, but what we need is who can drive it through the corners)
(student pilot, i'll be pilot, not for the salary,but by vocation and devotion, but the most important reason for me; to avoid this, but companies don't cooperate)

Of course if you really are going to be departing as planned you've got no problems.

Thank you for holding the Law makers feet to the fire on the need for FAA pilot fatigue rules changes. I am a airline pilot. I have flow many flights at a regional and major airline were we were just to tired to do the job safely. I am ashamed that it took the loss of so many good people to bring this change about. It is no secret that airlines could have been operating with more regard to safety. It is to bad when you see profit placed before safety.
All is not loss. We will be better rested with the new rules. To bad that they do not go into effect for some time (there again money first)
I am very sorry for all the families loss.
God bless you all!

Please accept my condolences and I am deeply humbled by your courage and dignity.

Thank you for all that you do. Please don't surrender your efforts. It is an understatement to say that the concerns you raise for all Americans came at a high price. I am so grateful.

Condolences for your collective loss. Your good work since stands as a proud memorial.
As a Q400 pilot in the UK, we studied the lessons to be learned and our operator specifically included recurrent stall training in the sim, recreating the fateful circumstances of 3407.
Thank you for your steadfast determination and strength.
