After a PAR approach to Prague, the crew were high on the glideslope, and passed the runway threshold at 80 m instead of 20 m. The pilot reduced engine thrust and deployed the spoilers, which is not allowed at a height over 5 m. The airplane smashed onto the runway with a 4 g acceleration force. It subsequently broke in two.
