07-Dec-1997 Flew into a ridge side at the 600ft level, approximately 1km from the Fagali Airport, at Apia, Western Samoa. After initially diverting to an alternate (Faleolo Int'l. Airport) due to weather at the destination field, the aircraft broke off the approach to Faleolo and proceeded to the original destination visually, when the accident occurred.
