According to World Airline Fleet News this is what info they say about it:
"Airbus Industrie A320-212 A40-EK (msn 481) was destroyed on August 23rd when it crashed nearing the end of the flight (GF072) between Cairo and Bahrain, killing all of the 135 passengers and eight crew aboard. The aircraft had been cleared to land on Runway 12 at Bahrain's Muharraq Intl. Airport and the approach controller provided the crew with the latest weather - clear sky, wind 090 degrees at 7 knots, with unlimited visibility. As the aircraft approached final, the pilot was cleared to descend to 1,500 feet. At 16 statute miles from the runway, the aircraft was at an altitude of 3,000 feet, air speed 380mph. The Captain disengaged the autopilot and took manual control of the aircraft for a standard VFR approach landing. As the aircraft approached the runway it became apparent that both altitude and approach speed were too high. The pilot performed a missed approached. The climb out and banking manoeuvres undertaken to re-establish for the second approach for Runway 12 were described by one investigator as being "short". The second approach was also high making a second missed approach necessary. Following the second missed approach the pilot commenced a tight 360-degree go-around, during which the aircraft descended and crashed into the Persian Gulf. At the point of impact, the water depth was shallow, varying between 6 to 40 feet in depth over the length and breath of the wreckage trail. The aircraft fragmented on impact and a post impact fireball and surface fire, fuelled by onboard fuel, ensued. Data gleaned from the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder ruled out mechanical failure as a priliminary or contributory cause of the accident. Interpretation of data from the CVR and FDR suggest that the pilot may have been frustrated and unaware of the aircraft's attitude and proximity to the ocean surface until very close to impact. It would appear that the pilot's frustration with the first and then second missed approaches may have clouded his judgement leading to poor desision making and a failure to follow safe procedures while undertaking the third attempt at landing. The investigation has beenn unable to establish any external influence or cause, other than poor airmanship, that led to the second missed approach and the subsequent crash preparatory to a third attempt at landing. The pilot-in-charge had recently been promoted to Captain and had logged a total of 6,856 hours - all types inclusive"
