A Vickers 827 Viscount passenger plane was destroyed in an accident following a mid-air collision with a military training aircraft. All 26 passengers and six crew members aboard the Viscount were killed in the accident. Ten people on the ground were killed when the Viscount crashed in a residential area. The pilot of the Fokker S.11 trainer parachuted to safety.
