He got in trouble because he was flying using tried and proven VFR

It can happen in the daytime also. It's happened to me turning downwind to
base over water with limited (although legal VFR) visibility and no visual
references in my field of view.

He was a bad pilot. Just because you can buy it, doesn't mean you can
fly it.
