Détails:
The DC-8-61, owned by Overseas National Airways, was flown to Luxembourg-Findel Airport on January 5, 1981. Cargolux was contracted to carry out refurbishing and modification works on the airplane.
Shortly after 02:00 hours on January 15, 1981, while the aircraft was in Cargolux' hangar, a fire broke out in an unattended area of the aircraft. At the time, two Cargolux mechanics were on board the aircraft completing minor maintenance tasks. After the mechanics unsuccessfully attempted to extinguish the fire, airport and city fire brigades were summoned to the hangar. Flames spread throughout the fuselage and completely destroyed the aircraft before the fire brigades were able to bring the fire under control.
