More than 1100 Kentuckians will be out of a job when Comair grounds its planes Saturday.

Parent company Delta announced it would stop using the jets back in July.

It said the change would come as Delta consolidates its operations.

Comair is headquartered at the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky International Airport in Boone County.

It's name is forever connected to Central Kentucky because of a tragedy in Lexington.

Flight 5191 crashed at Blue Grass Airport just after takeoff on August 27, 2006.

49 people were killed.

One pilot survived the crash.
