A McDonnell Douglas MD-11 airplane, EI-CDK, operated by Garuda Indonesia as flight GA800, was substantially damaged due to a tail strike during a go-around from an attempted autopilot autoland landing on runway 8L at Honolulu International Airport (HNL), Hawaii. The flight crew completed a touch down and a go-around followed by an uneventful landing at 12:35. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight plan was filed. There were no injuries to the 289 passengers, 4 flight crew and 15 cabin attendants.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's failure to apply adequate manual control inputs following his decision to disconnect the autopilot during the autoland operation, resulting in a subsequent loss of directional control. Also causal and contributing to the tail strike was the pilot's improper decision to initiate a go-around during reverse thrust engine operation."
