SummaryCrashed into trees in poor weather while attempting to land at Newark. Error on the part of the pilot for attempting to get down under the overcast without first definitely proving his position. Improper dispatching for clearing the flight into an area of predicted bad weather, particularly when the area cleared through did not permit a safe return, and staticonditions encountered which rendered reception of the radio range signals over the airplane's range receivers unintelligible.
