Due to poor weather conditions at the destination Kosice (KSC), the flight continued to Poprad/Tatry Airport (TAT). Strong winds blew the airplane off the approach course, causing a let down 11km to the east and 3,5km to the northern of the approach track. The airplane descended over mountains until it flew into the side of Mount Skapova (elevation (4042 ft).
