Narrative:
The aircraft came from U-Tapao Air Base and intended to land at Bangkok-Don Muang Airport (BKK) in poor visibility. The pilot decided not to land on the fully equipped civil runway. He carried out an approach to the military runway instead, which was closer to the military terminal. The F-27 landed next to the runway and ploughed trough a field. The wings, tail, and undercarriage were torn away by the impact. The aircraft overturned and an engine caught fire.
