On a humanitarian flight from Billund to Kabul via Baku, the aircraft struck the ground 910 meters short of runway in Kabul on a night approach in bad visibility. The crew diverted to Termez but the airport was closed due to fog. So the crew eventually diverted to Dushanbe. On landing, the aircraft skidded on runway and came to rest. Nobody was injured but the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
