The Viscount skidded sideways off the runway into a monsoon ditch when the pilot tried to turn the aircraft (groundloop?) at the end of the runway. The undercarriage folded up sideways and one wing was broken. The Viscount named "City of Karachi" had been delivered just 4 months prior to the accident.
