Circumstances:
While approaching Port Moresby Airport, the twin engine aircraft was too low for unknown reason, hit tree tops and crashed inverted in a dense wooded area located near Mount Lawes, some 12 km north of the Port Moresby-Jacksons International Airport. Both pilots (among them an Australian citizen) and a passenger were killed, while all six other occupants were injured. The aircraft was totally destroyed. A day later, a second passenger died from his injuries.
