NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

As the pilot was on final approach to Runway 17 during the night visual-flight-rules flight, the airplane entered a fog bank approximately 50 feet off of the ground and he lost all visual reference.
