Aircraft was engaged in a training exercise with 14 Russian soldiers and 9 Czech soldiers on board.

The aircraft was partially destroyed by fire.
Wrong approach configuration. Crew came in too fast, touched down hard on the nose gear at a speed of 260 km/h and bounced twice, touching down with 1.6 to 3.3 g. The nose gear collapsed and the aircraft overran the runway.
