Beschrijving:
The Falcon 20 operated on a chartered cargo flight from Gdansk, Poland to Louisville, KY (USA). Intermediate stops were planned at Copenhagen (Denmark), Keflavik (Iceland), Narsarsuaq (Greenland) and Sept-Îles (Canada). The flight was uneventful until the approach to Narsarsuaq. The crew made a briefing on the runway 07 NDB/DME approach while descending to FL195. At 04:27 UTC, while descending through FL130, Narsarsuaq cleared the crew for an approach at their own discretion. Weather at the time was: wind 080deg at 24 knots, visibility 10km with broken clouds at 6000 feet and overcast at 9000 feet, light rain.
While flying the approach, the crew did not adhere to the Standard Operating Procedures a.o. with regards to altitude calls and checklist reading. Furthermore the GPWS was inoperative and the crew were exposed to peak fatigue. They were awake for 22 hours and were on duty for 16:56 hours. Flight duty time was exceeded by almost three hours. While attempting a visual approach to runway 07 the aircraft descended into a high ground to the left of the runway 07 approach path and broke up.


CAUSAL FACTOR: "A combination of non-adherence to the approach procedure and the lack of vertical position awareness was the causal factor to this CFIT accident."
