Unfallbericht:
After delivering cargo to Traverse City, the aircraft returned to Toledo as an instructional flight for the first officer in training. Upon arrival in the Toledo area, the pilots initiated an ILS approach to runway 07. The approach terminated in a missed approach, and the airplane was radar vectored for a second ILS approach to runway 07. During the approach the plane descended below the glide path. The airplane impacted trees, and came to rest on level ground, 1.57 nautical miles from the approach end of runway 07.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The flight instructor's inadequate supervision of the flight, including his failure to maintain an approach airspeed consistent with the airplane's configuration, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall due to slow airspeed, and subsequent uncontrolled descent into trees. Factors were the icing conditions, the flight instructors failure to turn on the wing and engine anti-ice, and his lack of experience as an instructor pilot in the airplane."
