People living near the site of last week's cargo jet crash at Birmingham's airport say they're worried about safety.

   The head of a community association, Robert Walker, addressed members of the city's airport authority on Monday.

   Walker says residents fear another crash. He says they want assurances that big planes like the UPS A300 jet that went down last Wednesday won't be using the runway nearest their homes.

   The jet clipped trees around homes before crashing about a mile from the end of the runway.
