OUT Q=tomorrow for Bhaskaran.

(( The single engine Beechcraft went down near McAfee's Knob, killing the pilot, Praveen Bhaskaran (Bah-Sharin).
Investigators say the Vinton man reported a problem shortly before the plane went down.
According to the plane's data recorder, Bhaskaran (Bah-Sharin) transmitted that he was going to attempt to land at the Roanoke Regional Airport using an instrument landing system approach.
While trying to land he radioed to another pilot and said QUOTE: "...we're still about twenty nine hundred, we're starting to see some ground about now."
About 25 seconds later, during the last recorded message, he also radioed "I'll tell what I'm gonna do... I'm gonna do a missed approach..."
The transmission then ended abruptly.
The report says the marker beacon lights were not observed in the instrument panel or on the accident site.
A review of maintenance records revealed they were removed in April and never replaced.
No word yet on whether that was a factor in the crash.
A memorial service will be held tomorrow for Bhaskaran (Bah-Sharin).))
