  • The aircraft was performing a cargo flight from Timika, carrying a load of various goods, among them building materials. Following an uneventful approach, the airplane bounced twice upon landing on runway 15. It then veered off runway to the left and while contacting a soft ground, lost its both main gears before coming to rest on its belly with the right engine partially sheared off. All five crew members evacuated safely while the aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair.
