A Boeing 747-8F of Nippon Cargo Airlines, operating NCA/KZ258 from Hong Kong to Tokyo/Narita, suffered a tail strike while go around in the first landing attempt on runway 16R at Narita at 18:50 LT. The freighter landed safely in the second attempt 20 minutes later. In the post flight inspection, a scar with three meters long and 90 cm wide was found in the lower rear fuselage. The runway was temporally closed for inspection, but found nothing abnormal. There were no injuries among two crew members. Wind shear may be a factor.
Initially, JTSB launched an investigation as a serious incident, however, the rating of the occurrence was changed to an aviation accident next day.
