During cruise after 20 minutes of flight, the right engine failed. Attempts to restart the engine were unsuccessful. The pilot diverted to Nuuk. On approach, 100 m from the runway, the aircraft turned sharply to the right into the wind. After the pilot corrected, the aircraft was 130 m to the right of, and parallel to, the runway at a low altitude. The aircraft impacted rocky ground and the right gear was torn off. It then impacted an embankment.
