While landing on Runway 32 at Leeds Bradford Airport, G-CELD encountered windshear at about 30 ft agl and became unstable in the flare. As a result, and unbeknown to the crew at the time, the right engine nacelle contacted the runway. Inspection of the runway revealed a 15 m scrape mark on the threshold, with associated paint matching G-CELD's engine cowling.
