You'll notice two runways, one is very much shorter than the other. There is some question as to if the pilot used the wrong, shorter runway by mistake.

A picture from FoxNews.com:

http://www.foxnews.com/images/220434/32_25_082706_kentucky_crash.jpg

shows the site to be in the area of Lat 38.039685, Lon -84.611413. Substantually closer than the 1/2 mile that I've seen in the press.
