Airline officials have identified the crew of Continental Connection Flight 3407 that crashed as it approached Buffalo Niagara International Airport, killing all 49 people on board and one on the ground. Pinnacle Airlines, the parent company of Colgan Air, which was operating the flight, says the pilot was Capt. Marvin Renslow, who joined the airline in September 2005 and had flown 3,379 hours with the carrier.

The first officer was Rebecca Shaw, who joined Colgan last January and had flown 2,244 hours with Colgan.

Flight attendants were Matilda Quintero and Donna Prisco, who both began flying with Colgan in May.
