Circumstances:
The crew was completing a humanitarian flight from Dolow on behalf of the World Food Program. On final approach, the right main gear hit a two meters high concrete wall. On touchdown, the right main gear collapsed, causing the right wing and the right engine to hit the runway surface. While the right wing was partially sheared off, the right engine caught fire. The airplane skidded for dozen yards before coming to rest in flames. All four crew members were able to evacuate safely while the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
