I do recall that a British Airtours/British Airways Boeing 707-436 whilst on crew training at London Stansted Airport during the seventies crashed whilst attempting a touch and go. The aircraft belly flopped onto the runway and caught fire.

I have tried to search online for a link to the story but I couldn't find anything related to the incident but I'm sure that I had previously read about it somewhere online.

A similar incident with a British Airtours Boeing 707-436 also occurred at Prestwick Airport during the seventies.
