A semi-annual check flight was flown using Super Constellation F-BHMK during which 4 night-time landings had to be carried out. Ceiling was 60 feet and visibility 1 mile when the 4th approach was flown. Following a normal ILS GCA approach to runway 26L the aircraft titled sharply to the left touched down briefly and became airborne again. The aircraft then crashed back onto the runway in flames.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was the result of excessive corrective manoeuvres performed at the time of contact with the runway ... icing on the aircraft might have reduced its aerodynamic qualities."
