A Sudanese B 707 cargo plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Sharjah airport. All six on board died in the crash.
I did a little research on the 707 and found they were built up to 1979 and that more than 60 are still in operations, primarily in Africa. I thought it weird in that the some 747-200's are older than the 707. The 747-200 series started in 1972 and finished in 1992. A nice run..
I hope this didn't come across as macabre because of the loss of life, that is not my intention.

Big thread on pprune.com on it, with some security camera video of the crash.
