Here is a video of the very same incident:
I read most of the report posted earlier - it seems that for about 4-8 seconds, the aircraft was in some real danger. Not only was the 742 only 1,000 lbs below MTOW, but due to windshear, it simultaneously lost 8 knots of headwind component as the wheels left the ground, which was the exact same time it lost power in the no. 4 engine. The stick shaker shook intermitantly for about 30 seconds as the aircraft reached 150 AGL, descended as low as 105 feet AGL, and finally clawed its way back to a three-engine climb profile after reaching V2
and retracting the flaps.
