The Antonov departed Kabinda, D.R. Congo, carrying 10.000 kg of cargo bound for Luanda. At a distance of 1850 m from the runway at Luanda, the Antonov was 13 m above the glideslope. The crew increased the vertical rate of descent to 6,6 m/s until it descended below the glidesope 1450 m from the threshold. The aircraft leveled out at an height of 12 m, 290 m from the runway threshold. A brief wind shift at that point led to a drop in the indicated speed from 260 km/h to 248 km/h. The aircraft touched down very hard short of the runway. Colliding with the raised lip of the runway, nearly the entire main undercarriage was sheared off.
