SummaryCrashed during a missed approach procedure. A loss of directional control, which resulted from the intentional shutdown of the pumps supplying hydraulipressure to the rudder without a concurrent restoration of power on the No.4 engine. A contributing factor was the inadequacy of the hydraulifluid loss emergency procedure when applied against the operating configuration of the aircraft.
