 Airline executives for Colgan Air, which operated doomed Flight 3407 got an earful from frustrated victims during the second day of public testimony in Washington DC.

Family members moaned and gasped as Colgan's vice-president Mary Finnigan told the National Transportation Safety Board about the airline's commitment to safety.

It was also revealed that the 24-year-old co-pilot made just $16,000 a year and had made a 36-hour commute from Washington State to Newark, New Jersey where the plane took off.

The NTSB will be back for a third day of hearings on Thursday, looking into the fatal flight which crashed February 12th near Clarence.
