The pilot requested a straight in approach, but was cleared for a circling ILS approach. A rain shower passed the airport and an 8-knot 158-202 degree tailwind was present as the Falcon 20 approached the field. After touchdown the plane hydroplaned. The pilot did not deploy the drag chute and the plane overran the wet runway. Confusion exists regarding the registration; some sources report the plane was registered N7824M.
