CLARENCE CENTER, NY - The Families of Continental Flight 3407 gathered to remember their loved ones who died five years ago.
A public memorial service was held at Zion Lutheran Church at 8 p.m. followed by a candlelight procession to the Long Street crash site where the victims' names where read.
A bell was rung 51 times - once for each of the victims, including the unborn child of one of the victims.
The Families of Continental Flight 3407 group was formed immediately after the crash. It's a support network whose members are also fighting for airline safety reform.
Eight of 25 National Transportation Safety Board recommendations have been addressed, including pilot fatigue, additional flight time for pilots, and training for loss-of-control.
