Poor weather at Pyongyang (FNJ) forced the Tupolev to abort the approach. After holding for a while the crew attempted to land. During landing rollout the airplane exited the runway reportedly coming to rest against radar equipment.
Initial reports said that Tu-154B P-551 was involved in the mishap, based on a photograph of the plane in a field at Pyongyang. This however seems unlikely as the plane was already parked at that spot before the date of the mishap. It seems that P-561, a regular visitor on the Beijing flights, could have been the mishap plane.
