New York members of Congress are calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate whether the operator of a 2009 plane that crashed into a house near Buffalo violated federal laws by withholding emails showing misgivings about the pilot's abilities.
The Buffalo News ( http://bit.ly/uKOFH5) reports that federal lawmakers sent the letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday. They say flight operator Colgan Air's failure to release the emails was "possibly criminal."
A lawyer for families suing over the crash says the emails show Colgan managers doubted Capt. Marvin Renslow's ability to fly the plane. All 49 people on board the doomed New Jersey-to-Buffalo flight and a man died on the ground.
Colgan parent Pinnacle Airlines said it submitted the August 2008 emails to court cases three months ago.
