Pax on board:
The single engine aircraft left Wamena at 0745LT for a 20 minutes flight to Ninia. Upon arrival, strong winds forced to crew to follow a holding pattern and some 40 minutes later, the pilot attempted to land. According to the Kompass website, it appears the aircraft landed long (some half way down the runway) and was unable to stop within the remaining distance. It overran, hit a pile of wood and went down an embankment before coming to rest. Five occupants were injured while the flight engineer (copilot) was killed.
