A THY Fokker F-28 jet was on a night instrument approach to Istanbul-Yesilköy (IST) when an electrical power failure occurred at the airport. The airport and runway lights went off but were restored within 10 seconds. During this period of darkness, the F-28 crew initiated a missed approach. The pilot elected to remain VFR under a variable ceiling of 240 m. Because another aircraft was about to takeoff, an extended downwind leg was flown. The aircraft crashed into the Sea of Marmara while maneuvering for another approach.
