Summary: The aircraft crashed in poor weather conditions 0.8 nm south of the threshold of runway 1R at Dulles International Airport while attempting a ILS landing. Poor airmanship and relative inexperience of the captain in initiating and continuing an unstabilized instrument approach that led to a descent below the authorized altitude without visual contact with the runway environment. Contributing to the cause of the accident was the lack of a GPWS on the airplane.
