The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating Thursday night's deadly commuter plane crash in a suburb of Buffalo, N.Y. A Continental Airlines commuter plane went down, killing all 49 people on board and an occupant of the house it crashed into. It's the nation's first fatal crash of a commercial airliner in 2 ½ years.
