Thanks for the info Joona, Hkgspotter1, I never said that it had anything to do with the crash. I just asked what the crosswinds were.

ACTUALLY Hkgspotter1, theire were many reasons why the pilot took off on the wrong runway. One being that the lights for the small taxiway to 05L were either dim or broken. If you want to discuss this further which should be exciting then let's do it on a new post. Let's not spoil this post.

The crosswinds have been ruled out of the investigation as it didn't affect the cause of the crash.
