The flight crashed into a seawall during ILS approach in adverse weather conditions. The failure of the flightcrew to monitor altitude and to recognize passage of the aircraft through the approach decision height during an unstabilized precision approach conducted in rapidly changing meteorological conditions. Poor positioning of the aircraft for an approach by ATC. Questionable information presented by the flight director.
