During the descent towards Tallil Air Base one engine flamed out due to a failure in the engine control system.
As the nose gear did not lower, the crew decided to go around. The main gear could not be retracted again and the aircraft lost speed, leading the flight crew to carry out a forced landing on an unpaved part of the airfield. All occupants escaped unhurt.
