SummaryThe plane crashed while on approach and during an attempted go-around. The crew allowed the aircraft to deviate to the left of course and descent below the glide path for reasons unknown. The crew encountered local fog and restricted visibility during the final approach of an ILS approach and missed approach procedure came too late to prevent the aircraft from descending into the ground.
