http://aviation-safety.net/database/1976/760627-1.htm

There's a link to an official account of the incident.

I tried including a direct link to the site, but if you go to this site:

http://www.jetphotos.net/census/

and type in F-BVGG in the box marked registration, it will show that it is still flying as TC-MNA for MNG Cargo Airlines - not bad for line #19 (and 30 years old!!).
