Tragedy in the desert. A French superquadrimotore from Saigon and headed for Paris, for reasons not yet specified, suddenly lost altitude and crashed, setting itself on fire in the desert area about twenty kilometers south-east of Cairo International Airport. Six crew members and twelve passengers were saved; among them a child who, miraculously unharmed, was the first to run to meet the rescuers who got off small planes loaned by a company Egyptian oil industry. In the catastrophe, 52 people were killed. Illustration for Courier Sunday, 4 March 1956.
