Other reports say that part of a antenna from a nearby Comms building was found caught in the landing gear, and that there is damage to at least one of the engines as well.

They're reporting light rain and fog in the area at the time of the landing.

Rain and Fog affects ILS?

They still need to see the runway, and still need to have a dry enough surface that they don't hydroplane, now don't they.

The left main landing gear clipped an antenna near the runway on final, and the tail struck the runway when they flared for landing.

Obviously it got in the way of the ILS

The landing gear appears to have hit a wireless antenna, and the left engine hit the localiser.

So what happened to instrumented landings and auto landings?

Why was the 1) antenna too high , or 2) the plane too low?

Don't planes have ABS or anti-skid technology?

Maybe airports need grappling wires

Pilot error. They misjudged height over the runway in bad weather.

Don't they read instruments?

Could they have been set wrong?
