Lexington Airport Makes Runway Improvements

Lexington's Blue Grass Airport has added new markings to its tarmacs to lead pilots to the right runway.

The new markings come nearly a year after 49-people were killed in a crash after their plane took off from the wrong strip at the airport.

The National Transportation Safety Board said in July that the flight crew's failure to spot clues to their location at the airport caused the 2006 crash.

The board's recommendations included adding enhanced markings to all taxiways and runways at commercial airports.
