Descripción:
The Yakovlev 40 passenger plane, operating Cubana flight 2886, was destroyed when it impacted mountainous terrain 4 km short of the runway at Santiago-Antonio Maceo Airport (SCU).
The flight departed Camagüey at 01:04 hours local time. An NDB approach was flown to runway 09 but the approach was abandoned at 01:51 hours. A second attempt was made at 01:55, resulting in another aborted approach. The crew then attempted to manoeuvre visually for an approach to runway 27. The aircraft struck the ground, 4 km short of the threshold of runway 27.

Probable Cause:

CAUSA ESTABLECIDA: "Error de la técnica de pilotaje del capitan al mando de la aeronave al interrumpir el procedimiento NDB y continuar el vuelo de acuerdo a las reglas de vuelo visual (VFR) en circunstancias que las condiciones meteorologicas existentes, la escasa referencia visual y la topografica montanosa del terreno, hacian aconsejable operar de acuerdo a las reglas de vuelo por instrumentos (IFR)."
