Narrative:
Nordwind Airlines flight 1801, an Airbus A321-200, made a hard landing on runway 18C/36C at Antalya Airport, Turkey.
The nose landing gear was pushed into the fuselage, penetrating the cabin floor. The nose landing gear tyres burst and the forward fuselage section suffered serious damage.
According to a report made by the captain after landing, the flight performed a stable ILS approach to runway 36C. He attributed the hard landing to 'windshear' over the threshold. A go-around was executed during which the navigation and attitude indication failed. Smoke entered the cockpit and the flight declared a Mayday. Subsequently a low pass was made over runway 36C so the Tower could assess the damage to the aircraft. Then a dual hydraulic failure occurred, and the fight again declared a Mayday. A left-hand visual approach was flown to runway 36C and the aircraft landed. The runway was vacated and the aircraft was then shut down.
