The collapse of a military transport in Indonesia


The representative of the Indonesian search and rescue agency Ivan Ahmad Riski Titus reports that the plane took off from the airfield in the city of Timika and was heading towards the town of Wamena.

The crash site was discovered by rescuers. It is located on the slope of the mountain Lisuva. There is an operation to deliver the dead to the Indonesian Air Force base.

Earlier, President Joko Widodo promised to support the program of updating the fleet of transport aircraft after the collapse of a military aircraft in another Indonesian province. Then the investigation team found that the cause of the crash was a malfunction in the engines of the aircraft.

          the campaign is no longer in the weather, but in ground stations providing control of airspace and coordination of flights.

      And here it’s quality, they have about 30 such transporters, indispensable workhorses for the Indonesian army. It crashed into a mountain, probably came out of the clouds and that’s all.

      Hercules is one of the most reliable aircraft. Incidents with it are mainly associated with piloting errors and ground service deficiencies.
      Relatives of the victims of condolences

          Ilyushushins always have beautiful cars and this one promises to be like that, but Brazilians and Ukrainians have already overtaken us with competitive models. Now we need to wait for our first aircraft to be assembled, and the Ministry of Defense will be interested in it and make a strong order. Only then you can talk with potential buyers, because no one will buy a cat in a poke.
          Need to work!

            What difference does it make, the main thing is that the car is excellent. For many years, no accidents.

    The C130 itself is an old airplane, plus operating conditions in those parts are far from what it should be. But the car is good.

    There would be a place, I would sit with idle engines. And there: mountains, jungle, ravines ... It’s easy to break there by helicopter. For example, on September 8, 25475, one of our Mi-10 1992 airlines crashed during landing, a disaster. December 3, 1995 - crash of Mi-8 No. 25518 (affiliated with Sakhalin) - landing altitude 1550 m. November 9, 2013 - on Kalimantan, among other 49 losses of Mi-8 for this year (although half were destroyed in Syria)
    Although, all this is in the order of things. Aircraft fight regularly. For a year, several hundred. Mine, for example, crashed not in the mountains, but in the taiga in 1991, including 15 Mi-8s for this year. And here - Indonesia ... Java, Papua ,,,, Kalimantan. Islands of natural disasters. And the aircraft ...
