This crew was on a night SAR case to Old Harbor, AK in very poor weather.  While circumnavigating Ugak Island, a small island with high terrain just off the main island of Kodiak, it is believed that they encountered unexpected weather in the form of heavy winds and rain.  The aircraft impacted a high cliff and fell to the beach below to be consumed by a post-crash fire.
