Beschrijving:
The aircraft, named "Johannesburg" struck the ground 9,000 feet before the runway threshold, whilst on the final approach to runway 06 of Nairobi-Embakasi Airport at night, in low cloud base conditions. The nose landing gear sustained damage but the crew were able to become airborne again. It was decided to circle the airport and perform a wheels-up landing.
The aircraft touched down approximately half way along the runway and came to rest about 21 feet from the end of the stopway. Fires that started in engines no. 2 and 3 were extinguished by crew members. All passengers and crew escaped without injury.

Probable Cause:

Probable Cause: "An error of judgment on the part of the pilot in deciding to abandon instrument flight and revert to visual flight in conditions where the visual reference available to him was inadequate for that purpose."
