Unfallbericht:
The Boeing Stratoliner departed Saigon at 03:40 GMT for an IFR flight to Vientiane. At 04:10 GMT the aircraft returned to Saigon with the no. 4 engine shut down. A runway 25 overshoot was made due to suddenly deteriorating weather (visibility declining from 500-1000 m to 50-80 m). A violent squall blew the plane to the right causing it to strike the ground and crash.
