Circumstances:
The aircraft landed long in a snowstorm. It ran off the runway and eventually came to rest in a river dike. One engine was torn off, wings were damaged and undercarriage were sheared off. Pilots should normally land at Kansas City International airport but due to an incident on a MD-83, this airport was closed to trafic. So the crew divert to Kansas City-Charles B. Wheeler-Downtown airport. On landing, the brake action was poor due to snow on runway and the aircraft's brake systems were partially out of service.
