GAITHERSBURG, Md. (WUSA9) -- When she first moved to Gaithersburg with her husband and 2-year-old daughter, Jennifer Etzel admitted she enjoyed living near the Montgomery County Airpark.
"I think one of her [my daughter's] first words was airplane. And it's a huge source of enjoyment that became really a disappointment for our family," Etzel said.
But that all changed last December, when a plane crashed into three homes on Drop Forge Lane in Gaithersburg, killed a mother and two children in one of the homes and three men on board the plane.
"That rattled us to the core - that everyday life in those homes was exactly what that mother was doing with her children," Etzel said.
Etzel's concerns were shared Wednesday when scores of residents who live around the airpark explained those concerns to the county.
