Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
During landing at Kanpur, the aircraft touched down late and could not be stopped within the available runway length and went beyond the runway. The aircraft hit the boundary wall of the airport and came to halt. The aircraft sustained major damages. There was no fire and no injury to persons on board the aircraft.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident was caused due to late touch down at higher aircraft touchdown speed as a result of which the aircraft overshot the runway and suffered damage by impact with boundary wall. Wrong selection of runway, overloading of aircraft, non-deployment of spoilers and lower visibility conditions than the required, were the contributory factors."
