Narrative:
Angara Airlines flight 96 was damaged in an accident during landing on runway 30 at Ust-Kut Airport (UKX) in poor weather conditions.
Low clouds and poor visibility caused the flight crew to discontinue the approach an go around.
The aircraft circled for another approach. This time the approach was continued. The flight crew noticed that they were 15-20 meters to the left of the runway, so the captain made a 15° bank to the right, but ended up overcorrecting. The aircraft was not descending left of the runway and the captain made a 30° left bank and full rudder deflection.
The flight engineer then ordered a go around and the throttles were advanced to takeoff power. The left bank then increased to 40° and the left wing tip struck the ground to the right side of the runway. The aircraft then hit the ground with a vertical overload of about 2.6 g and travelled over the ground and onto the runway.

The left-hand wing tip was severely damaged and the nose landing gear had folded.
