He decided to return for landing. The aircraft landed at 08:07 on runway 36 and drifted to the left. The airplane left the runway and its right wing collided with an electric mast before it came to rest on 3 stationary military tanks at a distance of 700 m from the main runway causing major damage to the tanks.
