Because the runway had become slippery after two days of rain and because of dense fog, the aircraft bounced off the pavement to land in the field. According to Air Traffic Controller, the Turkish Flight missed the runway central alignment and landed in between the TIA runway and taxiway that forced the aircraft to skid on grassy land.
I hope that the ATC controller didn't quote this.....but it is Nepal.
