Summary: After gaining altitude the cargo plane descended until it impacted trees. Improper IFR procedure by the first officer during takeoff, his lack of instrument scan, his failure to maintain a positive rate of climb or to identify the resultant descent, and the captain's inadequate supervision of the flight. Contributing factors were: dark night, low ceiling, drizzle, the first officer's lack of total experience in the type of operation, and possible spatial disorientation of the first officer.
