Airline doubted flying ability of pilot involved in 2009 Buffalo crash

New questions are emerging about whether the pilot behind the controls in a deadly 2009 crash near Buffalo, NY could handle the plane he was flying. Lawyers for the victims' families have released emails from Colgan Air that they say are the "smoking gun" – proof that the airline had doubts about this pilot's ability.

On American Morning today, Alina Cho speaks with Hugh Russ, an attorney representing five families of victims to the crash, to discuss these emails and what they mean for the future of this case.
