The Hendrick Motorsports airplane that crashed on Sunday apparently made an unsuccessful approach to Blue Ridge Airport before it went down.
Today, an air safety investigator confirmed that the plane was performing a "missed approach procedure" when it slammed into Bull Mountain.
The crash killed all ten people aboard, including the son, brother and two nieces of owner Rick Hendrick. Today, their remains were recovered from the wreckage and sent to Roanoke for identification.
Joe Dashiell has more tonight on the investigation.
