Preliminary information suggests the aircraft was dispatched with the right-hand brakes inoperative, the left-hand brakes failed during landing causing the aircraft to overrun the end of the runway while running over soft ground both left-hand tyres blew.

Panjgur features a runway 13/31 of 5000 feet/1524 meters length. Usual landing direction is 31.

The aircraft remained “invisible” on ADS-B/Mode-S during the approach to Panjgur, the landing direction thus remains unclear. Extensive analysis of the photo showing the ground tracks (the only photo that shows a lot of backgrounds) suggests, mainly by the left side of the photo showing higher ground within the airport perimeter fence causing the fence to climb, that the aircraft landed on runway 13.
