Circumstances:
Following an uneventful cargo flight from Jayapura, crew started the descent to Wamena runway 15. In marginal weather conditions, aircraft crossed the last cloud layer with a visibility of 5 km but was unstable on final approach. After landing, while decelerating, nose gear collapsed. Aircraft veered to the left, lost its nose gear which was sheared off and went through a grassy and muddy area. Aircraft slid for about 50 meters before coming to rest. While all three crew were uninjured, aircraft was damaged beyond repair.
