Approaching the end of the runway, the aircraft veered to the right, lost its right main gear and came to rest in a sandy area with the right engine torn off and the right wing severely damaged. All 128 occupants evacuated and six of them were slightly injured. The aircraft was damaged beyond repair. A week after the accident, a 86 year old woman died from her injuries (fractured skull).
