The 747 crashed into an 11 story building in the Bijlmermeer residential district, short of the runway, killing 47 people on the ground along with the crew of 4 on the plane. A corroded midspar fuse pin on the number three engine caused the loss of the pylon and engine leading to loss of the number four engine and damage to the controls causing the aircraft to crash.
