The pilot did do the best and preventing deaths. Looks like he bled off speed and came in slow and hard which broke of the tail and flight deck.
We had two different aircraft take SAM's up the tail pipe during climb out (take off)at Bagdad Intl. Airport. In both cases the aircraft lost at least one engine and the other lost two on the same side. They both circled back and landed safely. I think lack of seat time being it was a reserve crew had the biggest effect on not landing the aircraft.
