Boeing B737 Near CFIT after Situational Awareness

On 15 June 2006, a Boeing 737-300 cargo aircraft had to divert due to bad weather. On final approach the autopilot was disengaged for a short period. The aircraft touched down off the runway to the left, resulting in the right main landing gear being detached and the right wing tip and engine scraping the ground. The pilots managed to lift off again and subsequently made an emergency diversion where a landing was performed on the remaining two landing gears, during which the aircraft scraped on its nose and right engine. There were no injuries. The cause of the crash was determined to be a poorly timed message from local air traffic control which the pilot misinterpreted, causing him to descend too quickly.
