The Antonov crashed after impacting a tree while on final approach to Slupsk-Redzikowo Airport in Poland.
The right wing separated after hitting the crowns of roadside trees. The plane banked right and impacted the ground with the right landing gear first and turned 180 degrees. Although a fire erupted, all but one of the occupants evacuated safely from the aircraft.

The probable cause of the crash was the wrong interpretation of the altimeter readings and / or its operation by the crew.
