PIA flight 705, operating its inaugural service from Karachi to both Cairo and London, crashed on landing in Cairo on May 20, 1965, killing all but 6 persons on board the newly-delivered Boeing 720B. Many prominent government, business and journalists from Pakistan were on board, along with several PIA employees traveling on company business related to the inaugural. The crew included famed PIA Flight Attendant or "Hostess" Momi Gul Durrani who was hugely popular in Pakistan as the "model" for the airline. She was a very attractive young woman who became famous in the 50's and early 60's modeling PIA uniforms and representing the airline and country in publications. Regrettably, the crew did not survive; however, two PIA employees - a Press Officer and Station Manager did.
A dramatic accident for any airline or company to experience on such an important event.
Service on the route did commence as additional B720B's were delivered.
I hope this information is helpful,
