Narrative:The F-27 was approaching the runway with 40- degrees flaps and gear down as the pilot realized he was too high. While still at 1000 feet ground fine pitch was selected, causing the plane to enter a steep descent. The Fokker touched down very heavily on the main gear, causing the centre section of the wing to fail. The aircraft skidded for about 400m before coming to rest.
