Cargo plane crashes

Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue office said on Thursday that a cargo plane which went missing on Wednesday had crashed into a mountain in Papua province.

“A signal from the cargo plane had been detected and the crashed plane was located in the deep forest in remote Oksibil.

“The plane collided with a mountain in the deep forest area in Oksibbil.

Rescuers flying there could not reach the area partly due to the poor weather condition,” spokesman of the INSR named only as Marsudi said.

The spokesman confirmed that only a pilot was aboard the cargo plane C208 Caravan plane.

He said that the cargo plane was going to Sentani from Wajo when the crash occurred.
