Détails:
A Beechcraft 200 Super King Air, N117WM, registered to Coast Hotels and Casinos Inc. of Las Vegas, Nevada, collided with terrain approximately 2,4 km short of the runway while on an ILS approach to runway 34R at Salt Lake City International Airport, UT (SLC). The airplane was substantially damaged and, of the airplane's four occupants, one passenger was fatally injured and the airline transport pilot-in-command and the aircraft's other two passengers were seriously injured.
The executive/corporate flight originated at Las Vegas-McCarran International Airport, NV (LAS). Night instrumental meteorological conditions existed at the time, and the flight was on an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: The pilot's failure to maintain adequate airspeed on the ILS approach, resulting in a stall. Factors included: low visibility; the pilot's selection of the improper DME for the approach; his resulting failure to attain the proper descent profile for the approach; and insufficient altitude available for stall recovery.
