Four minutes after receiving clearance to descend to 3000 feet, the pilot reported he wasn't receiving the DME signal. At 23:24 Phuket ATC asked if the crew preferred a VOR approach to runway 09 instead of a visual runway 27 approach. The approach to runway 27 was continued, until the crew radioed that they had lost both engines, while passing 3400 feet and that they nearly hit a mountain. The aircraft eventually crashed into a mountain at 800 feet.
