Circumstances:
En route from Oradea to Iaşi, the crew was instructed by ATC to divert to Bacău Airport due to the deterioration of the weather conditions. On approach to runway 34, the crew encountered poor weather conditions with limited visibility due to freezing fog. Unable to establish a visual contact with the runway, the captain decided to initiate a go-around procedure. Few minutes later, during a second attempt to land, in a 800 horizontal visibility, the aircraft struck the runway surface, bounced, veered off runway and came to rest. All 10 occupants escaped with minor injuries and the aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
