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.
