At 300 m short of the runway the aircraft was at 50 m altitude and 51 m to the left of the runway centreline.
Instead of going around the crew manoeuvred the plane for landing. The aircraft landed on the right half of the runway at a distance of 7-10 m from the left edge with a slight roll angle and 19° to the left relative to the runway axis at a speed of 205 km/h at a rate of descent of 2.5 m/sec. The aircraft bounced and touched down 30 m further on. The pilot then lost directional control and the airplane swerved off the right side of the runway. It collided with a Yakovlev 40, CCCP-87451, ripping it in two and tearing off the starboard wing.
