Ten people died when the Hendrick Motorsports plane went down on Bull Mountain. An official with General Aviation at the Danville airport says the weather may have been a factor. At least 20 pilots heading to Martinsville used his facility because they felt it the fog made it too dangerous to land at the Blue Ridge airport.

Matt Broughton has been flying for nearly 20-years and says an airport like Roanoke is tougher to navigate than the Martinsville-Blue Ridge Airport in Spencer. To prove his point- Broughton took a News 7 crew through the *SAME* flight pattern the Hendrick plane would have taken. The runway is a straight shot with mountains nearly seven-miles around the edge of the airport.

A deadly plane crash in New York City just weeks after Nine-Eleven was the co-pilot's fault.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the co-pilot of American Airlines Flight 587 moved the rudder back and forth so many times in response to turbulence that the tail snapped off. The plane crashed less than two minutes after takeoff, killing 265-people. An N-T-S-B investigator says the copilot's reaction was ``unnecessary and aggressive.''
