Descripción:
Rising sand in the Aswan area caused the visibility to drop from 10km to 2-3km. The flight had made 2 missed NDB approaches and was approaching for the third time when it suddenly banked right. The right wing contacted the left side of the runway 1120m from the threshold. The wing broke of and the aircraft crashed in flames.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Pilot descended below the minimum safe altitude without having the runway lights clearly in sight. A contributory factor was fatigue arising from continuous working hours without suitable rest periods."
