A motor racing millionaire may have become confused just before the plane he was piloting crashed in thick fog killing all five people on board, a report has said.
Mr Kresiky was flying family and friends to Majorca for Christmas
Guernsey racing promoter Brian Kreisky was taking family and friends on a festive break to Majorca when the light aircraft crashed on 23 December, 2000.
The Beech 200 plane had just taken off from Blackbushe airport near Camberley, in Surrey, when the left propeller lost some power, a report from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said.
Mr Kreisky possibly became disorientated, could not see well in the fog and was perhaps confused as to the cause of the power reduction, investigators said.
With a rapidly increasing workload and with the problem still unidentified, "the pilot would probably have been very confused".
The report went on: "Although he may have realised the situation seconds before impact with the ground, there was insufficient height available to effect a safe recovery."
The aircraft crashed into a factory which had been closed for the Christmas break.
Mr Kreisky, from St Peter Port, Guernsey, was heading for Majorca for a Christmas holiday.
The passengers were his brother Michael Kreisky, 56, from Barnet, north London; Michael's son and daughter Tom and Clare; and Tom's girlfriend, Clare Gale-Hasslam.
Mr Kreisky, who was married with two children, was a nephew of former Austrian president Bruno Kreisky.
He made his fortune in motor sports videos and producing race coverage for satellite TV channels.
