Lockheed Tristar Tailstrike On Landing

The accident occurred during an automatic landing when the rear of the aircraft struck the ground on landing. The recorded airspeed on touchdown was 120 kt, while the calculated Vref was 145 kt. During the final stages of approach, the Auto Throttle System was inoperative but the crew did not detect the consequent diverging parameters of aircraft attitude and airspeed.
