Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- New information tonight on a fatal plane crash near Hawley that claimed the life of a Moorhead native.

A Federal Transportation Report shows Duluth pilot, Kevin Ferris, did not have the instrument rating recommended for the weather conditions forecast for his destination, Moorhead. It was foggy during the March 29th crash.

An investigation of the wreckage of the Cessna 152 found no sign of mechanical problems that would explain the crash. It could be a year before the NTSB releases its final report.
