The inexperienced captain continued the unstabilized runway 01R ILS approach and descended below the authorized altitude without visual contact. The Learjet struck trees and crashed 0,8nm short of the Dulles runway threshold.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The poor decisionmaking, 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.
