Summary: The crew continued their visual approach after entering an area of fog with visibility less than 500 m and losing sight of the ground. After deciding to go around, the right wing hit a 9-meter high pole. The wing caught fire and the number 2 engine failed. The fuselage hit the ground sideways in a field about 1,500 meters from the runway. The plane broke up and caught fire. The pilot-in-command decided to continue the approach below the glide under VFR mode in IMC conditions.
