There were 96 people on board, no one was injured. There was a cold front moving over the airport at the time, and the wind suddenly shifted
direction and strength. They went 730 feet off the end of the runway. It's registration LV-CKZ, operating as AU/AR-2225 from Rio de Janeiro.
The E190 is limited to 10 knots of tailwind, and 15 knots of crosswind. Winds were estimated to be 20 knots of tailwind and 18 knots of crosswind for
the runway they used.
