Narrative:
The Ilyushin Il-18B suffered an accident on landing Kuybyshev Airport (now named Samara).
The aircraft operated on a flight from Tashkent to Kuybyshev and Moscow. Weather at the first stop, Kuybyshev, was poor with low clouds. Twenty minutes before landing, the aircraft received data on the actual weather, which included a cloud base at 160 m, visibility 2 km in drizzle, wind 220° at 8 m/s.
During the approach the cloud base had dropped to 120 m, which was the minimum established for this airport.
After breaking through the clouds, at a height of 100 m, the crew saw the runway, which turned out to be to the right and at an angle to the direction of flight. On final approach the captain made some sharp maneuvers to align the aircraft with the runway. At a high rate of descent the aircraft struck the ground before the threshold. The left-hand main gear collapsed and a fire erupted.

Probable Cause:

The cause of the accident was an error by the commander in piloting technique when landing in difficult weather conditions, which was facilitated by insufficient training in approach and landing in difficult weather conditions, as well as by his inattention during the landing itself.
