To cause the crash to the aircraft took off from the airport of Chicago was the strong wind -16 knots with gusts up to 21 knots- that did not allow the pilots to stop the four-engine Boeing on the 2347 meters of the runway 14 of the Canadian airport, exceeding the threshold and continuing the run on the grass that end after about 200 meters after clashing against the antennas for the ILS. The damage suffered by the B-747 is substantial having broken the fuselage and the 4 engines only one (the outer one on the left wing) remained intact, while the others were destroyed in the impact with the ground.
