There are new details about a small plane crash that killed two Tulsa businessmen earlier this month in Canada. Investigators say poor weather conditions may be to blame for the accident.

Visibility at the time of the crash was just half a mile and it was snowing. That disputes earlier claims that the weather was clear. Charles Ryan and James Pielsticker were killed in the accident. Ryan was President and COO of the Nordam Group. Pielsticker was President and CEO of Arrow Trucking. The pilot also died.

They were among a group of 11 people on a hunting trip when the crash happened. Four others were injured.
