RACINE, Wis. - Weather seems to be the biggest factor in the crash landing of a small plane on Interstate-94 in Racine County last fall that injured one man.

The Journal Times of Racine reports that after a five month investigation, the Federal Aviation Administration has learned that other pilots questioned why pilot Keith George was in the air that October day.

George was flying a Beech B90 plane which requires clear weather conditions.

Investigators say George reported he had substantially clear conditions throughout his flight from Jackson, Michigan.

George ended up overshooting a runway at Yorkville's Sylvania Airport and skidded onto the freeway.  His passenger was injured, but the plane did not collided with any vehicles.
