Narrative:
The passenger said that the approach appeared normal until the pilot turned on the landing lights while in the overcast. Seconds after, the aircraft impacted trees, careening out of control, and snapping power lines; then striking a house roof before coming to rest on the ground. The airplane began to burn as it went through the power lines. The weather at the time was at or above IFR landing minimums. The flight had been in a holding pattern for forty five minutes prior to commencing the approach. All of the aircraft's systems and power plants, as well as the FAA approach facilities, were determined to be in working order.

PROBABLE CAUSE:
Proper glide path not maintained by pilot-in-command, decision height not identified by the pilot-in-command., missed approach not performed by the pilot-in-command, turning on lights in overcast.

Registration N200RS cancelled by the FAA on August 18, 1997
