The first VOR/DME approach to Charallave was abandoned. As the airplane broke through the cloud base at 800 feet during the second attempt to land at runway 28, it was not properly lined up with the runway. To avoid a collision with the control tower, the Citation turned right. The aircraft then crashed and burned.
