Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
After touching down on runway 03, the aircraft couldn't be sufficiently decelerated, so it came to a stop approximately 30 m beyond the runway end in the snow and 90° off the runway direction. The aircraft was on the way from Warsaw to Samedan.

The accident is attributable to the fact that after an unstabilised approach the aircraft touched down on runway 03 too late and too fast and could not be brought to a standstill within the remaining distance on the snow-covered and partly iced runway.
The following factors contributed to the accident:
- Inadequate flight preparation
- An approach on a aerodrome in mountainous area under critical weather conditions
