Takeoff was accomplished from Homer at 19:50. Just before takeoff the flight advised Homer Tower that it would proceed to Kenai in accordance with visual flight rules. At 19:57 the flight was advised by Kenai radio that there were no passengers or cargo at Kenai, so the crew decided not to land at Kenai. At 20:05, the flight struck the south side of Ptarmigan Head at an elevation of 2,800 feet, nine miles east of the center line of the airway to Kenai.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the action of the pilot in proceeding off the designated airway at an altitude insufficient to clear the terrain."
