Eyewitness account from Canadian survivor.

"We started to go for the landing and he just about hit the runway, but couldn't make it, so he lifted back up. We started to circle. I thought he was going to circle back around and try again, and then we took a sharp right and we started going for the ground."

Passenger says she adopted brace position at this point.

"We bounced once and then went straight into an embankment with trees and bushes.

"It was raining really hard. We saw a couple of people who were on fire."
