Circumstances:
The aircraft departed Tallinn-Lennart Meri-Ülemiste Airport in the afternoon to perform a local training flight, carrying one instructor, a second captain, four student pilots and an inspector from the Civil Aviation Authority. The crew complete several circuits, approaches, touch-and-go manoeuvres and also a full stop. At 1704LT, the crew started a new approach to runway 08 when something wrong happened with the airplane that apparently failed to respond to the crew instructions. The aircraft continued to descend and landed too hard. Upon impact, both engines struck the runway surface, the main landing doors were partially torn off and the transponder stopped transmitting. The crew declared an emergency, the instructor resumed control and initiated a go-around. Following a 'normal' approach to runway 26, the airplane landed then started the braking procedure when two loud bangs were recorded. The aircraft went out of control and veered off runway to the left before coming to rest in snow. All seven occupants escaped, two of them were slightly injured. The aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair and later transferred to Calw, Germany, to be used as a military training aid.
