Beschrijving:
A TMA Boeing 707 cargo plane sustained substantial damage in a mid-air collision with a Northrop F-5 fighter plane operated by the Republic of China Air Force.
The F-5 ripped off part of the Boeing's vertical stabilizer, causing the structure to lift, and the rear pressure bulkhead to fail. The freighter landed safely, but the F-5 crashed. The collision occurred at FL115.
