On approach to Hanover-Langenhagen Airport, the pilot encountered poor visibility due to foggy conditions. Unable to locate the runway, he decided to initiate a go-around procedure when the aircraft lost height and crashed 200 metres short of runway 27R. The aircraft was destroyed and all seven occupants were killed. At the time of the accident, the visibility was reduced to 400 metres due to fog.
It is believed that the pilot lost control of the aircraft while initiating a go-around procedure following an asymmetric thrust (the left engine apparently oversped).
