Asiana A320 hits radio antenna

An Asiana Airlines A320 hit a radio antenna array on approach to Hiroshima Mihara Airport in Japan, which became embedded in the left hand landing gear and also damage a wing and engine. The aircraft, which was carrying 82 passengers and crew from Incheon, Seoul, touched down partway down the runway, but swerved off and spun sideways halfway through the landing sequence, ending just short of a drainage embankment.
