Notes:

Was departing runway 27L when it passed behind a Delta DC-9 which had become stuck in the mud just to the right of the runway. The jetblast from the Delta jet caused a compressor stall in the 707's no. 4 engine. Hearing the bang, and believing that their plane had impacted the Delta DC-9, the TWA crew aborted the takeoff, but the plane overran the runway, climbed over an embankment, and came to rest 420 feet from the runway end.
