ADS-B data shows that the aircraft turned around before reaching CYTS. The flight climbed back to cruising altitude and proceeded to CDT9.

During the first attempt to land on runway 10 in CDT9, the crew conducted a missed approach due to the aircraft not being correctly positioned to land. Once past the threshold on the second approach, the right wing and nose contacted the runway, resulting in damage to the aircraft.
