Narrative:TSB reported that the Sky Wings Aviation Piper PA-31, C-FBBC, was landing on Runway 30 at Wetaskiwin (CEX3) after an IFR courier flight from Vermilion (CYVG). During the landing, the crew lost sight of the runway in a thin layer of dense fog which covered the airport. They aborted the landing, and the aircraft settled into a field about one half mile northwest of the airport. The pilots sustained serious injuries and the aircraft was substantially damaged. The flight crew utilized a cell phone to inform the Edmonton FIC of the accident, and to lead rescuers to them through the fog. The ELT activated during impact.
