Unfallbericht:The aircraft was on short ILS final approach, with the first officer at the controls, when it entered a rain shower. All forward visibility was lost, according to the pilots. The captain then took control of the airplane and performed a go around maneuver. Prior to the go-around, the aircraft touched down and one main landing gear truck struck an approach lighting junction box. At least one main gear tire was blown at that time. The aircraft landed safely and the crew was unaware that they had touched down short and to the right of the overrun. Several components on the underside of the aircraft were damaged by tire fragments. Weather conditions at the time included gusty winds and a slight wind shear.
