Détails:
An Antonov An-24 passenger plane was destroyed in an accident at Donetsk Airport (DOK), Ukraine. There were 44 passengers and eight crew members on board. Five passengers were killed. Five crew members crew and three passengers were seriously injured.
The airplane operated on a charter flight from Odessa (ODS) to Donetsk (DOK), carrying football fans on their way to a match of Shakhtar Donetsk against Borussia Dortmund. When commencing their descent towards Donetsk, the crew received the latest weather observations, which showed limited visibility due to fog.
The captain of the flight was certified to carry out approaches to a decision height of 300 m. After reaching decision height the crew did not observe the approach lights of runway 08. The captain continued the approach, descending below 300 m. He did not inform the other flight crew members of his intentions. The co-pilot and flight engineer did not take action to support the speed of the aircraft managing the engine's power settings. The captain then attempted to climb, causing the airspeed to drop to 150 km/h. The airplane stalled and fell off to the right. The airplane impacted the ground at a 48° bank angle.

Probable Cause:

The commission investigating the crash concluded that the cause of this accident was a loss of speed by the aircraft during approach due to an error of an unprepared crew, which had not been allowed to make the flight in those weather conditions.
