A Raytheon Hawker 800XP, N412JA, performing Talon Air flight TFF941, suffered an accident during landing on runway 14 at Farmingdale-Republic Airport, New York, USA. Both occupants sustained minor injuries.

At 20:32 local time the flight was cleared for an ILS approach to runway 14. The Tower controller reported wind calm and stated that the aircraft that landed five minutes prior had reported that the cloud base was at minimums.
She then reported that visibility had dropped to 1/4 mile in fog, indefinite ceiling with a vertical visibility of 200 feet.
The aircraft landed at 20:35 and subsequently radioed: "Mayday, Mayday, Mayday Talon Air 941 crash-landing runway 1-4, we're still occupying, send vehicles out."
Emergency services reported that there was damage to the nose radome and that the main and nose landing gears had collapsed.
The aircraft had come to a stop at or near taxiway A, which runs to the right of and parallel to runway 14. The portion of the taxiway between A4 and A5 was Notammed closed after the accident.

Probable Cause: The flight crew’s delayed decision to initiate a go-around after the approach had become unstabilized, which resulted in a hard landing.
