During an ILS approach to Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport during adverse weather conditions, the plane's right landing gear struck the grass adjacent to the runway, causing the plane to bounce up again. The crew initiated a go around, but during rotation, the tail fuselage struck the runway. The crew received a wind shear warning during the following climb, but entered a holding pattern and carried out a successful landing half an hour later. The aircraft has been grounded, as the right landing gear and tail suffered substantial damage in the landing accident.
