Crashed into buildings when both engines lost power due to birdstrike on takeoff from Dekalb-Peachtree Airport runway 20L.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The loss of engine thrust during takeoff due to ingestion of birds by the engines, resulting in loss of control of the airplane. The Federal Aviation Administration and the Airport Authority were aware of the bird hazard at the airport; however, contrary to previous commitments, the airport management did not take positive action to remove the bird hazard from the airport environment."
