Pax on board:
On final approach to Goma Airport, the crew failed to realize his altitude was too low when the aircraft struck the ground 38 meters short of runway threshold. Upon impact, the right main gear was torn off. The aircraft slid for about 300 meters then veered to the right and came to rest. All nine occupants escaped uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
The crew failed to initiate a go-around following an unstabilized approach completed at an unsafe altitude.
