National Transportation Safety Board investigators are analyzing the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder that were on Continental flight 3407. The plane crashed into a house near Buffalo, killing all 49 passengers and crew. One person died in the demolished house. Fires smoldered for hours, making it impossible to recover the bodies of the victims. Now the fires are out, and investigators from the NTSB, the FBI and the medical examiners office have been on the scene.
