Unfallbericht:
After holding due to adverse weather conditions, the aircraft approached Mangalore and landed half way down the runway. The aircraft overran the runway and nosed over into a valley and came to rest against two boulders with the nosegear collapsed.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot persisted in landing under deteriorating weather conditions resulting in unsteady approach and late touchdown at a high speed. The contributory factors were non-extension of flaps to 'land' position, resulting in increasing landing roll, and the choice of landing on down-sloping runway with a tail-component."
