Descripción:
When approaching Warsaw after a flight from New York, the crew initiated an overshoot procedure due to problems with the locking of the landing gear.
When power was increased, the no. 2 engine disintegrated. Debris of the no. 2 engine damaged rudder and elevator control lines, causing the Ilyushin to enter an uncontrolled descent. The aircraft struck the ground in a 20 degree nose down attitude and burst into flames, some 800 m short of the runway 15 threshold.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: Metal fatigue of a turbine disc in the no. 2 engine.
