The aircraft, upon landing at Ajaccio Airport, burst two tyres and came to a rest near the end of the runway, where it was disabled. The passenger and crew were unhurt and exited the aircraft via the stairs. Crew negligence seems to be a factor in the accident, though authorities are still investigating the official cause
