Circumstances:
The twin engine aircraft departed Nabire Airport at 0640LT on a cargo flight to Bilogai, carrying three crew members and a load of building materials. On approach to Bilogai-Sugapa Airport, the crew encountered poor visibility due to foggy conditions when the aircraft impacted trees and crashed on the slope of a mountain. The wreckage was found about three hours later at an altitude of 2,400 metres some 3,4 km west of the airfield. The aircraft was totally destroyed and all three occupants were killed.
