Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Tehran, the crew started the descent to Tabriz and was informed by ATC that visibility was low due to heavy rain falls. After landing on runway 30R (3,556 metres long), the aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining distance. It overran and rolled for about 500 metres before coming to rest in a ditch. All 110 occupants were rescued, among them two passengers were slightly injured. The aircraft was damaged beyond repair as the nose was destroyed and the bulkhead severely damaged.
