Circumstances:
After landing on runway 23 at Tamale Airport, the four engine aircraft failed to stop within the remaining distance. It went through a fence that was delimiting a work area as the runway was subject to an extension. Upon impact, the nose gear was sheared off and the aircraft slid for several yards before coming to rest. While all 76 occupants were unhurt, the aircraft seems to be written off. It was specified in a NOTAM that the runway 23 length was fixed to 1,860 meters and that works were in progress on extended runway 23, with presence of men and equipment. So, caution was advised during landing and take off procedures.

On final approach to Accra-kotoka Airport, the crew encountered poor weather conditions with limited visibility due to heavy rain falls. In a nose down attitude, the aircraft landed hard on runway 21, nose first. Upon impact, the aircraft broke in two and came to rest. Seven passengers were killed while several others were injured, some seriously.
