Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Isfahan, the crew started the approach to Mashhad Airport in poor weather conditions with low visibility due to snow falls. After touchdown on runway 31R, the aircraft skidded and went out of control. It veered off runway to the left, lost its undercarriage and came to rest 55 meters to the left of the centerline, about 2,200 meters from the runway threshold. All 154 occupants were quickly evacuated and were unhurt while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. At the time of the accident, it appears the runway was icy and slippery.
