HAWLEY, MN (KDAL) - The National Transportation Safety Board says the small plane crash that killed 48 year old Kevin Ferris of Duluth last March was due to pilot error. The Cessna 152 plane he was piloting went down in dense fog near the Hawley, Minnesota airport. The NTSB investigation says Ferris made an improper decision to fly in weather conditions that he was not qualified for. The report says an examination of the plane revealed no mechanical problems. Ferris ran a small flower shop and was known in the Duluth area as the "Rose Man". He was on his way to Moorhead from Superior when the crash occurred.
