Formosa Airlines flight 7613 took off from Taipei-Sung Shan Airport (TSA) at 15:29 on a flight to Matsu Island (MFK). Visibility was poor as the Dornier 228 approached the airport. The crew attempted a visual approach in instrument conditions. The approach was continued although the copilot had not yet spotted the runway. He was concentrating on obtaining visual cues and failed to monitor the approach. The crew noticed that they had descended very low and increased power. The aircraft was not able to gain height fast enough, contacted the sea and crashed.
