Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Casablanca, crew started the descent to runway 19 at Tunis-Carthage International Airport, in marginal weather conditions. After a course of 1,600 meters after landing, aircraft veered to the right, went through a grassy area for 114 meters and contacted the perpendicularly runway 11/29. The ground collision caused the nose gear to collapse and aircraft came to rest 130 meters further. All 83 occupants evacuated safely but aircraft was damaged beyond repair. At the time of the accident, strong winds and heavy rain falls passed over the airport.
