Circumstances:
On final approach to Igarka Airport, aircraft hit trees and crashed 700 metres short of runway. All eleven passengers and the stewardess were killed as the aircraft was destroyed by fire. For unknown reasons, pilots continued approach under glidepath and prescribed altitude. Both pilots and the engineer survived.
Probable cause:
Crew decided to continue the approach in low visibility and under prescribed altitude, despite the fact they did not have any visual contact with the runway. Weather conditions were worst as minima of airfield, aircraft and crew. Aircraft was approaching too low and was also off track at the time of impact.
