Destroyed due to undershooting during final landing approach. Arrived late at Paris/Le Bourget for the Paris Air Show with much fuel still on board. As flying display was about to start, pilot was given the option of diverting elsewhere or making an immediate overweight landing. He chose the latter, but aircraft touched down short of runway.
