The approach to runway 25L was flown on the autopilot. At a height of 120 m the crew were to switch off the autopilot, but they did not do so. While continuing the descent, the pilot in command was using elevator input to counter the autopilot. While over the runway the descent rate increased and the plane hit the runway at a sinkrate of 6-8 metres/sec. The left wing was torn off, the landing gear collapsed and the fuselage skidded for 400 metres before coming to rest next to runway 25L.
