In the morning, the aircraft departed from Antalya (LTAI) in Turkey, as flight OHY601, with 146 passengers and seven crew members on board.
During the VOR-DME approach for runway 06 at Rotterdam Airport, the aircraft was controlled manually and the thrust was determined by the automatic throttle control system ('auto thrust system'). At 09.47 hours local time the aircraft landed before the beginning of the runway. During this landing the tail of the aircraft hit the ground, causing considerable damage to the tail section.
The captain, who was also the pilot flying, stated that the aircraft lost speed and altitude during the last part of the approach. He reacted to this by having the aircraft adopt a higher pitch attitude. According to him the auto thrust system would have had to deliver more power due to the higher pitch. He stated that he did not notice the desired reaction by the auto thrust system because he was looking outside at that moment. It is not clear if and how the first officer checked the instruments during this phase of the flight. He did not intervene nor did he point out the speed drop to the captain.`

Probable Cause:

Het ongeval had voorkomen kunnen worden als de procedures van Onur Air juist waren opgevolgd. Vanwege het beperkte bereik van dit onderzoek zijn de onderliggende oorzaken van het niet opvolgen van deze procedures niet onderzocht.
