China Eastern Airlines flight 5398, an MD-82, took off from Shenzhen at 11:50 hours on a domestic flight to Fuzhou Yixu Airport.
The aircraft was cleared to carry out an IGS/DME (Instrument Guidance System) approach to runway 08.
At a distance of 2 km from the runway, the aircraft was high and 350 m to the right of the extended centreline. The pilot attempted to correct this, but it became impossible to land. At an altitude of 20 m go-around thrust was added and the flaps were retracted. The aircraft continued to sink, whereupon the pilot decided to make forced landing. He pulled back the throttles and landed the plane 1983 m past the beginning of the runway. The aircraft overshot the runway and broke in three, coming to rest in a pond 385 m from the runway.
