The captain tried to arrest the high sink rate on final approach by giving max power to climb away. The Metro continued however and landed heavily on runway 11 , causing the right main gear and the nose gear to collapse.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Failure of the captain to maintain proper altitude and wingtip clearance, while aligning the airplane with the runway before landing. His delay in aligning the aircraft with the runway was a related factor."
