Dornier 328-110, D-CPRW


The aircraft failed to capture the glideslope during an ILS approach in IMC conditions to Runway 24R at Manchester Airport. The operating crew did not monitor the flight path of the aircraft and were only alerted that they had descended (with a high vertical speed) dangerously close to the ground some 5.5 nm from touchdown, by a “GLIDESLOPE” aural alert triggered by the EGPWS. The commander disconnected the autopilot and performed a go-around. ATC provided radar vectors to re-position the aircraft for another ILS approach, following which the aircraft landed without further incident.
