Descripción:
DC-4 OO-ADN was parked directly in front of the tower at the Elizabethville Airport (now Lubumbashi). A Katangese Air Force Fouga Magister (93) attacked the airport and dropped two 100 lb. bombs one of which made a direct hit on the DC-4. The Fouga then circled and strafed the field causing much confusion but minor damage.
