Asiana Boeing 747 Descends Too Low On Hong Kong Approach

A glideslope fluctuation appears to have caused the go-around of an Asiana aircraft at Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok International Airport last week. The flight, coming in from Hanoi, was too low at just 800 feet above ground level over four nautical miles out from the runway. Hong Kong ATC instructed the plane to perform a go-around. It did so and shortly after landed safely.
