Pax on board:
Crew was performing a delivery flight from Ukraine to Honduras with several intermediate stops. On approach to Bukhta Provideniya, just after passing the outer marker, aircraft sharply banked to the left. Left wing hit the ground and aircraft crashed in a snow covered field some 2,100 meters short of runway threshold. All three occupants were injured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
It appears that the thrust reverser on left engine was engaged by mistake on approach. This was caused by a mechanical failure.
