16 February 1998 - China Airlines 676

The Airbus A300-622R jet, registered B-1814, was en route from Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali, Indonesia to Taipei, where it carried out a ILS/DME runway 5L approach to Taipei Chiang Kai Shek Airport in light rain and fog when the it came in 1000ft too high on the glide slope (at 1515ft, 1,2nm short of the threshold). Go around power was applied 19 seconds later over the threshold (at 1475ft agl). The gear was raised and the flaps set to 20deg as the Airbus climbed through 1723ft in a 35-deg pitch-up. Reaching 2751ft (42.7 deg pitch-up, 45kts speed) the aircraft stalled. Control couldn't be regained as the aircraft struck the ground 200ft left off the runway, hit a utility pole and a highway median. It then skidded into several houses, surrounded by fish farms, rice paddies, factories and warehouses, and exploded. Weather was 2400ft visibility, RVR runway 05L of 3900ft, 300ft broken ceiling, 3000ft overcast.
