Unfallbericht:
While on final approach at night, the pilot reduced engine power to flight idle. At 230 feet (70 m) the pilot added some power, but the speed decayed to an airspeed below VREF. The stick shaker activated, though full power was applied. The 737 touched down 400 m short of the runway, causing the undercarriage to fail.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: Misjudged speed, distance and altitude. Contributing factors were the inadequate crew supervision and the non-use of VASIs (Visual Approach Slope Indicators).
