While on a night approach to runway 35, the crew encountered low visibility due to low ceiling and fog. On final, the pilot-in-command lost control of the airplane that crashed few miles short of runway. Both occupants were killed and the aircraft was destroyed.
Loss of control caused by a spatial disorientation. Inadequate maintenance and inspection was a contributing factor.
