Unfallbericht:
After a flight from Cairo and Khartoum, the aircraft was inbound at 04:14. On final approach the aircraft broke through clouds at approx. 150 feet, but was 200-300 feet to the right of runway 32. The Comet banked left, made some shallow turns and made a higher than normal landing flare half way down the runway. This caused the aircraft to stall; the left wing and pod fuel tank struck the runway and the Comet crashed.
CAUSE: Attempted landing from unfavorable position, brought about by the fact that the pilot had descended below weather minima before being able to establish visual ground contact.
