Last Update: May 19, 2016 / 20:35:54 GMT/Zulu time
The event became known through rumours that surfaced on China's Weibo service (similiar to Twitter) in February and got confirmed by a preliminary report by China's Civil Aviation Authority (CAAC) on Mar 5th 2013.
The CAAC reported that the aircraft sustained damage (penetrations and dents) to the left main gear door and left main gear gear proximity cover actuator, the left main gear outboard tyre received cuts. The antennas of the southern NDB "D" and inner marker were damaged, two other antenna pillars were damaged as well. The CAAC annotated that the approach was continued below MDA without necesssary visual reference putting the aircraft below the approach profile, in addition the crew did not initiate the go-around after the first ground proximity alert.
