Impact occurred at an elevation of about 500 ft, shortly after the aircraft had descended over water, then crossed the shoreline. There was evidence that the captain had made a navigational error & mistakenly believed that he was circumnavigating the northern portion of Mokokai Island. The aircraft crashed while on a heading that was parallel with the island's northern shoreline. Low clouds obscured the mountain tops in the area of the accident. There was also evidence of inadequate supervision of personnel, training & operations by Aloha Islandair management & insufficient oversight of Aloha Islandair by the FAA during a period of Aloha Islandair's rapid operational expansion. – Two crew and 18 pax killed – Aircraft written off.
