HAWLEY, MN (WTAQ) - Western Minnesota officials have identified the victim of a fatal small plane crash near Moorhead as 48 year old Kevin Ferris of Duluth.
He took off from the Superior airport Friday morning to visit his parents over the Easter weekend. Ferris was found dead after his plane went down four miles south of Hawley.
There is speculation Ferris tried to land the single-engine Cessna because of fog in the area. His girlfriend says Ferris started flying two years ago, calling him a conscientious pilot who always took flying seriously.
A search plane spotted the wreckage last Friday afternoon.
