An Egypt Air Airbus A300-600 freighter, registration SU-GAS performing flight MSX-525 from Cairo (Egypt) to Moscow Domodedovo (Russia), was on approach to Domodedovo's runway 14R about 2nm before touchdown when the crew initiated a go around from below 434 meters MSL, climbed back to 1100 meters, positioned for another approach and landed safely about 12 minutes after the go around.

Rosviatsia reported the crew received a warning of collision with the ground while on approach to runway 14R about 4km out and went around.

Domodedovo Airport is located at 179 meters MSL. Following a 3 degrees glideslope 4000 meters before the runway threshold the aircraft thus is supposed to be at 403 meters.

ADS-B data show the aircraft at 449 meters (1475 feet) MSL at 142 knots over ground at 13:22:13Z descending at 700 fpm, reaches a minimum of 388 meters (1275 feet MSL) at 13:22:33Z, at 13:23:13Z the aircraft is at 602 meters (1975 feet) at 182 knots over ground maintaining altitude. The ADS-B data show a significant map shift putting the aircraft about 3000 meters abeam of the runway and thus can not be used to determine/map the position of the aircraft.
