Six years since Flight 3407 crashed


CLARENCE CENTER, NY - It's a day that still doesn't get any easier for Western New Yorkers affected by the crash of Flight 3407 in Clarence Center.

Thursday marked the sixth anniversary of the crash that killed 49 people aboard the plane and another man on the ground.

The occasion has become quieter over the years as the pain from the crash fades. There was no official vigil at the peaceful memorial on Long Street this year.

But we did speak with one family member who came to the site to reflect. Ray Eckert lost his sister Beverly in crash. "It's good to come out here and be around the other family members who were affected by this," he told us. "Just to be here is a little bit comforting, as well as reminding me what a terrible night that was. And there's not a day that goes by, really, that I don't think about it."
