Commuters are showing faith in the aircraft process despite a plane crash that killed two people Thursday night.
Travelers taking flight just hours after the plane headed from JFK to Cleveland, Ohio say while the incident is frightening, it won't prevent them from traveling.
That faith is still strong after two recent incidents at JFK. The first happened Friday when two full planes nearly collided with each other on the runway. The second happened just two days ago when two JetBlue aircraft bumped into each other.
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the cause of the crash.
