A Boeing 707-3B4C operated by Luxor Air Egypt suffered a landing accident at Monrovia-Roberts International Airport (ROB), Liberia. All 175 passengers and seven crew members survived.
The airplane operated on a hadj charter flight from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Shortly before touchdown on Monrovia's runway 04, the crew lost visual contact with the ground. The airplane touched down hard and bounced. It came down again in a right-wing low attitude, causing the separation of engines no. 3 and 4. The 707 then went off the left side of the runway before crossing the runway again in a right hand motion before coming to rest.
