Circumstances:
Crew was engaged in a training mission and was performing touch and goes manoeuvre at Tver-Migalovo Airport. By night, aircraft landed hard and nose gear penetrated the floor just behind the cockpit. Aircraft came to rest on runway and was considered as damaged beyond repair as the fuselage was wrinkled in the front part. All crew escaped uninjured. It is likely that due to a wrong approach configuration, aircraft landed nose first with a high aerodynamic acceleration.
