The Beechcraft B300 Super King Air 350 was approaching runway 16 of Freiburg Im Breisgau Airport, Germany in heavy fog. The crew descended too low and touched trees, 450 meters before the runway. The plane crashed in a small forest and burned out.

Probable Cause:

The accident in which the aircraft touched in controlled descent trees while on final approach under visual flight rules (VFR), was due to the fact that:
- The decision was made for a visual flight at night (night VFR), although the weather conditions were marginal,
- The approach to the airfield in Freiburg was continued with insufficient visibility.
