Circumstances:
The twin engine aircraft left Masamba-Andi Jemma Airport at 1425LT for a flight to Makassar with an ETA at 1539LT. Contact was lost around 1515LT when the aircraft was cruising at his assigned altitude of 8,000 feet in the center of South Sulawesi. The wreckage was eventually spotted on October 5. It appears the aircraft hit tree tops and apparently crashed in a mountainous area, near Mount Latimojong. The aircraft was destroyed and all 10 occupants were killed.
