The crew continued their visual approach even after entering an area of fog with visibility less than 500 m and losing sight of the ground. When deciding to go around, the right wing hit a 9-meter high pole at a height of 6 m. The wing caught fire, and the number 2 engine had failed. With a progressive roll the aircraft flew 420 meters at an angle of 40-45° until the right wing touched the ground. The fuselage hit the ground sideways in a field about 1500 meters from the runway. The airplane broke up and caught fire.
