        Because they tend to break the wing spar and roll over?

          Yes, and that was a design feature working as intended rather that a "bug". It was designed and certified to do so.

            So, do we file this under CFIT or tail strike?

              Stop it! We know that CFIT is generally flying along in IMC with no intention of contacting terrain.

              And the plane is not_under control if it lands short of the pilots intention.

                Incorrect. We file it under lowriding.

                  Indeed.
