((The missed approach procedure at Blue Ridge Airport calls for a climbing right turn, but the plane never altered its course as it passed over the runway. At 12:26, the plane was on the final segment of its approach. It leveled off at 2600 feet, before beginning another gradual descent. At 12:30 and three miles beyond the airport, the plane was at 1800 feet before controllers lost its altitude readout.


Three minutes after that, the flight crew indicated a missed approach, and controllers advised the crew to climb, but there were no more radio transmissions.
The plane came to rest on the southeast face of Bull Mountain at an elevation of about Two thousand four hundred fifty feet. Investigators did not talk with anyone who saw the crash, but witnesses did hear the plane as it passed over the airport, and saw it as it approached Bull Mountain. Though the plane was flying low, witnesses said the engine sounded fine. Witnesses said the mountain was completely obscured by fog and clouds at the time of the crash.))

[LIVE= JoeD /FULL Newsroom]


The airport's navigational equipment was tested and found to be working properly. The pilots were experienced and certified. The Beech 200 King Air had been inspected in June. While the plane had a Global Positioning System receiver, it was NOT equipped with a cockpit voice recorder, a flight data recorder or a ground proximity warning system.

Even though a referendum to replace the aging courthouse failed two years ago, the court ordered the localities to build a new one. Under state law, without voter support a new courthouse can only be built on land contiguous (con-tig-uous) to the current location. Lexington and Rockbridge County already had a design plan for a new courthouse in place, but sought today's ruling to look into ways to move the courhouse to a new location. There still are some hurdles for the county and city, but supporters of the delay say they're pleased to have more options.
