Summary: The airliner crashed onto the runway and broke in two during a major storm. One hundred twenty four people were injured. One passenger died of a heart attack and a 11- year-old girl died later of head injuries. Execution of the flight below the angle of approach, due to a misjudgment of the crew, believing to be much higher, leading the aircraft to fly a typical trajectory of a 'black hole' illusion, which was experienced during the night-time approach to a runway with low contrast surrounded in bright focused lights, aggravated by bad weather of heavy rain.
