Unfallbericht:
The Caravelle was backtracking runway 29L when the crew were asked to expedite taxiing and clear the runway on the run-up area because of traffic on finals. While initiating a left turn at the end of the runway the right main gear collapsed. The right wing fuel tank ruptured and the escaping fuel ignited while the Caravelle slid for 90 m before coming to rest.
Evacuation of the aircraft was carried out through exits on the left side of the aircraft.

Probable Cause:

Causes: The right main landing gear failed as a result of the propagation of fatigue cracks in the lower right hand candelabre of
RIB 44.
