Obscured Vision Leads to Fatal Air Crash? CFIT Again?

A recently released NTSB preliminary report on the fatal crash of a single-engine Cirrus SR-22 in Utah states that moments before the crash the plane was above 13,000 feet in the midst of clouds between 9,000 and 27,000 feet mean sea level (MSL). Light rain was reported. Both the pilot and his wife were killed in this July 14th crash. A local newspaper speculates that the pilot’s vision was obscured.
