WESTERN NEW YORK -- Tuesday marks four years since Continental Flight 3407 crashed in Western New York. It killed one person on the ground and all 49 people on board, as well as an unborn baby.

Four years later, family members of the victims continue their push for airline safety. The continental flight was operated by regional airline Colgan Air and the families say those airlines aren't held to the same safety standards as major carriers.

A group of about 50 family members and supporters are headed to Washington, D.C. for the anniversary of the crash. They'll speak with congressional representatives and sit down with members of the FAA to push for increased safety measures.
