On final approach to Słupsk-Redzikowo Airport by night, the crew failed to realize his altitude was insufficient. The airplane struck roadside trees, lost height and crashed in a snow covered field located two km short of runway 27, bursting into flames. The aircraft was totally destroyed and one passenger was killed while 51 other occupants were rescued, among them 33 were injured.
It was determined that the probable cause of the accident was a misinterpretation of the altimeters on part of the crew or a wrong altimeter setting.
