Circumstances:
The aircraft left Milan-Malpensa at 0700LT and proceed to the east. After an uneventful flight, the crew started the descent to Istanbul-Atatürk Airport runway 05. At a height of 100 feet above the runway, the aircraft banked right, stalled and hit the runway surface. On impact, the right main gear was damaged and punctured the right wing. In such condition, the captain decided to abandon the landing manoeuvre and attempted a go around. The aircraft climbed to an assigned altitude of 3,800 feet, the crew declared an emergency and confirmed that the right engine was out of service. The crew completed a 20 minutes circuit over the bay of Marmara and started a second approach to runway 35L. On touchdown, the right main gear collapsed, the aircraft fall onto the runway, slid for several yards and eventually rotated to the right, veered off runway and made a 180 turn before coming to rest. All 97 occupants were quickly evacuated safely while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. According to the operator, the loss of control during the last segment was caused by turbulence from a preceding Boeing 787 landing on the same runway 05.
