Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Moanda, Gabon, crew executed the approach in poor weather conditions (rain falls, winds and turbulence). On touch down, twin engine aircraft skidded and veered off runway to the left. While contacting a soft ground, landing gear collapsed while an engine was sheared off. Aircraft slid several yards and came to rest. All ten occupants were uninjured while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. Windshear with microburst is suspected.
