Descripción:
Flight PM612 left Prestwick for a flight to Dublin. The flight was uneventful and the aircraft was cleared for a runway 17 approach and landing. The aircraft touched down at the threshold and bounced 3 to 4 times. The crew decided to carry out an overshoot, and the aircraft continued to climb, slowly turning towards the left. The bank angle increased until the port wing struck a penthouse. The plane then struck the ground and an office block.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot attempted an overshoot manoeuvre, following the stoppage of the port engine, at too low a speed (below the minimum control speed) resulting in an uncontrollable turn towards the Airport buildings."
