Comair Ruling to Happen Soon

The National Transportation Safety Board said it expects to rule in July on a probable cause of Comair flight 5191's crash.

The board announced tentative plans for a public meeting on July 26, 2007, in Washington, D.C. The meeting is expected to last up to four hours and include the safety board's recommendations and findings concerning a cause of the August 27, 2006, crash that killed 49 of the 50 people on board.

The board decided against holding a public hearing that would include subpoenaed witnesses and could have taken much longer.
