Federal investigators say they expect to rule in July on a probable cause of last summer's Comair plane crash in Lexington, Kentucky.
The National Transportation Safety Board says it's planning to hold a public meeting in Washington on July 26th. The meeting is expected to include the agency's recommendations and findings on the August 27th crash that killed 49 people.
Flight 51-91 was barely airborne when it took off before dawn from a runway that was too short and crashed into farmland. Only the first officer survived.
Comair is a Delta Air Lines subsidiary based in the Cincinnati suburb of Erlanger, Kentucky.
