The impact caused both main landing gears to be sheared off and the aircraft skidded few dozen meters before coming to rest on its belly 2,500 meters past the runway threshold. All 119 occupants were evacuated, among them 10 were injured. The aircraft is written off.

Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Islamabad, crew started the descent to runway 36R in marginal weather conditions. On touch down on a wet runway, right main gear collapsed. Aircraft slid for 1,700 feet before exiting the runway to the right and coming to rest 60 feet further on. All 46 occupants were unhurt while the aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair. Five minutes after the accident, the weather briefing was as follow: OPLA 311015Z 16009KT 3000 RA BKN040 OVC100 29/24 Q1003. But ten minutes prior to the crash, the weather briefing was as follow: OPLA 311000Z 33008KT 4000 -RA SCT040 BKN100 32/24 Q1002 TEMPO 31030KT 2000 TSRA FEW030CB. Thus, the conditions were considered as marginal with turbulence, wind to 30 knots and CB's at 3,000 feet. On 11SEP2012, the French BEA reported that the aircraft touched down just at the beginning of the paved surface (undershoot area) to the right of the extended runway 36R centerline, causing the right mains gear to collapse.
