Narrative:
The approach to runway 14 in conditions of heavy rain and turbulence was abandoned and a go-around initiated. The aircraft still lost some height and collided with a 6m high antenna, located 650m from the runway. The inner flaps on the right wing were damaged substantially and the crew could only carry out a right hand turn instead of a left one as told by ATC. A safe flapless landing on runway 16 was made.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "1) Unterschreiten des Gleitwegs im Endanflug; 2) Zu spät eingeleitetes Durchstartverfahren; 3) Fehlbeurteilung der Wetterverhältnisse durch die Besatzung; -4) Ungenügende und/oder unzweckmässige Zusammenarbeit der Besatzungsmitglieder."
