You’ve Got To Be Kidding

Not this aircraft, but same operator and type

Not this aircraft, but same operator and type

The curse of Papua contines, claiming another Twin Otter late this afternoon. Information at this stage is that contact with the aircraft flying Dekai to Wamena was lost at 1710 WIT (East Indonesian Time). Unfortunately too late for any sort of search and rescue action.

Aviastar (the operator) seems to be acknowledging that tomorrow will be a search and recovery mission. One can always hold out hope though.

20 serious accidents involving Twin Otters in Papua since 2000… Wow.
