The cargo plane approached Dundo in favourable weather conditions. The airplane touched down just short of the runway. The right main landing gear collapsed after striking the raised lip of the runway. The Boeing 727 continued onto the runway and deviated to the right; it slid off the runway onto an area covered with high grass and bushes. Then the other landing gear legs collapsed. In the mishap a man was killed who had stopped to relieve himself close to runway.
