Latest article posted in Global News (Canada) dated 3/30/2015 and link below, reported according to Canadian TSB investigators the the landing gear of the A320 Airbus hit the bright-orange antenna array – part of the airport’s instrument landing system – 335 metres short of the runway as it landed. A wing was damaged and one engine was torn off the plane when its underbelly of the plane hit the asphalt runway. Weather may have been a factor and the investigation continues.
Yours truly is not a Pilot- just an Aviation Fan. So why did the A320 land short as reported by Canadian TSB, was it weather related, Pilot mis-judgement or what? Maybe the CVR and FDR will yield some clues.
