Beschrijving:
While enroute it appeared that the anti-icing system didn't work properly. This forced the crew to divert to San Manuel. Because the airspeed indicators malfunctioned during the landing phase, the aircraft landed with a much too high speed. The reversers didn't operate, so the aircraft overran the runway and ended up in a ditch. The gear collapsed and the aircraft caught fire. The co-pilot was not qualified to act as a co-pilot on this flight.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE:
"Wrong runway .. selected .. pilot in command
Airspeed .. excessive .. pilot in command
Proper touchdown point .. not attained .. pilot in command
