The National Transportation Safety Board released a preliminary report Tuesday, citing weather as the main factor in the crash.

At that time visibility was five miles in the rain. Forty-five minutes later, Dr. Hardage's wrecked plane was found in San Benito County. To see the entire report, click here .
