The twin turbo Caribou left Timika at 0757LT on a cargo flight to Ilaga, carrying four crew members and a load of construction materials. While approaching the Ilaga Pass and flying at an altitude of about 3,650 meters, the aircraft hit the slope of a mountain and disintegrated on impact. The wreckage was found a day later about 12 km south of the intended destination. All four occupants have been killed.
