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 6 m high antenna, located 650 m 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) falling below the glide path in the final approach; 2) take-off procedure initiated too late; 3) incorrect assessment of the weather conditions by the crew; -4) insufficient and/or inappropriate cooperation of the crew members."
