En route from Olbia to Torino-Caselle Airport, the pilot was informed about the deterioration of the weather conditions and decided to divert to Genoa-Sestri-Cristoforo Colombo Airport. On approach, he was unable to establish on the localizer despite several attempts and finally initiated a go-around procedure. While circling in limited visibility, the aircraft struck the slope of a mountain. All five occupants were killed.
It was reported that the pilot was not certified to fly in IMC conditions and his experience was limited.
