On final approach to Lukapa in heavy fog, the captain decided to make a go around. A second approach was aborted few minutes later. During the third attempt, the four engine aircraft hit obstacles some 200 metres to the right of the runway, crashed and burst into flames. A crew and 11 passengers were killed. Reported by many sources as being D2-FVG, but this is not correct. See c/n 401908.
