Narrative:The airplane came in too high and too fast. It landed at 893 from the end of the grass runway (length: 1305 m). The Antonov skidded off the runway and collided with an 1,20 m high concrete pillar, which was part of the airport perimeter fence. The airplane was severely damaged because it had also ran across some holes in the ground. A fuel tank was compromised and the fuselage was damaged.
