Well, three more terms are 8^69+69^8 = 
9^76+76^9 = 
, and 21^68+68^21 = 
52096060144958129 (these are  prime according to PARI).

If I haven't made any mistakes, these are the next 3..

What should be done with A173907?

Richard Mathar points out in a comment that the definition does not
match the terms given.  The definition given actually corresponds to
A045344, so one solution would be to delete the sequence (and possibly
add a comment there).  Another would be to change the definition to
disallow 1s which lead to the trivial solutions.  Of course this would
leave only two terms, falling two short of the required four.
