Circumstances:
Following a territorial surveillance mission, the crew was returning to his base in RAF Sealand. On approach, the visibility was poor due to the night and foggy conditions. Pilots missed the runway, overshot and landed long. After touchdown, the twin engine aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining runway, overrun and collided with a tree. Both crew members were injured while the aircraft was damaged.
