Pax on board:
En route, weather conditions worsened and the pilot decided to reduce his altitude in an attempt to maintain a visual contact with the ground. While cruising at an altitude of some 250 feet, the twin engine aircraft struck a radio antenna and crashed in flames in a field. All five occupants were killed.
The pilot took the decision to continue under VFR mode in adverse weather conditions. Due to improper in-flight decisions, he failed to see and avoid the radio antenna.
