Summary: The cargo plane crashed into high ground less than 5 miles from the airport while on an ILS approach. The poor in-flight planning by the pilot-in-command for his initiation of the ILS approach to runway 05 with weather conditions below minimums for the approach contrary to the Federal Aviation Regulations, and the failure of the pilot to maintain control of the airplane during a missed approach resulting in the in-flight collision with trees then terrain.
