This morning, the National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report on the crash that killed ten people on their way to a NASCAR event at Martinsville Speedway.

Kimberly, this report does not draw any conclusions about the cause of the crash, but lays out a summary of the facts investigators collected during their on-scene investigation. And it offers more details on the plane's unsuccessful approach to the airport.

((The missed approach procedure for Blue Ridge Airport calls for an immediate right hand turn, but the plane did not alter its course. According to the NTSB report, the plane was three miles past the airport when it fell below 1800 feet and controllers lost its altititude readout. Three minutes after that, the flight crew reported the missed approach, and the controller advised the crew to climb. But there were no more radio transmissions. 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 very low, witnesses said the engine sounded fine. The mountain was completely obscured by clouds and fog.))

[LIVE=Joe /FULL]


The airport's navigational equipment was 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 a cockpit voice recorder, a flight data recorder or a ground proximity warning system.

Kimberly, It may be several months before members of the National Transportation Safety Board meet to discuss the crash, and issue a ruling on the probably cause of the crash.

But all the cameras will remain outside when the jury reaches a verdict. Judge Alfred Delucchi rejected a request for a live TV camera in court when the verdict is read. The judge has allowed only very limited still photos and brief video in the courtroom. His concern during the verdict, he said, is for the families of both Laci and Scott Peterson. (GRAPHIC: Place text as indicated in quotes underneath artwork, which should be squished back) "no way I can predict the reaction either of these families will have" the judge said...

[FAT] America's bulging waistlines are now weighing down the airline industry, requiring more and more fuel to get planes into the air.
A report out of the Centers for Disease Control says in the year 2000, airlines had to spend an extra 275 (m) million dollars on fuel in order to carry the extra weight of passengers.
The government agency says it's highlighting the problem in hopes that people realize the obesity epidemic has many serious consequences.
The average weight of Americans rose by ten pounds in the 1990's. For airlines, that's meant tons of extra weight and fuel.
The air companies say they've already cut down on other types of weight -- tossing thick magazines and moving from metal forks to plastic ones. [Quickcast]
