This is not an accident investigation report.

Four minutes after receiving clearance to descend to 3000ft, the pilot reported he wasn't receiving the DME signal. At 23.24h Phuket ATC asked if the crew preferred a VOR approach to Runway 09 instead of a visual Runway 27 approach. The approach to Runway 27 was continued, until the crew radioed that they had lost both engines, while passing 3400ft and that they nearly hit a mountain. The aircraft eventually crashed into a mountain at 800ft.
