While on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Dallas Forth Worth the aircraft crashed while making an landing attempt in thunderstorm activity. The plane touched down 6 000 feet short of the runway and 360 feet to the left of the runway centerline, became airborne again, struck a car killing the driver, crossed the highway and crashed into two water tank reservoirs. Microburst induced windshear. The flightcrew’s decision to initiate and continue the approach into a cumulonimbus cloud which they observed to contain lightning. Lack of training for avoiding and escaping from low-altitude windshear.
