The aircraft touched down 2 m short of the runway. The undercarriage struck a drainage ditch and collapsed. The aircraft continued onto the runway, veered right off the side of the runway an crossed a road, striking a bus with its right wing. The short and narrow runway at M'Banza forces B727 pilots to touch down as soon after the threshold as possible.
