looks like it is a pilatus porter aircraft. Still not too much information or a cause for the crash.

Just to clear up, this crash happened in Irian Jaya/ West Papua, the Indonesian half of the island. This is the second crash there in as many weeks. In the other incident, a BAe-146 hit a mountain in Wamena.

Whilst maintenance and safety with many of Indonesia's carriers is less than stellar, we must not forget the extremely difficult environment in West Papua. Poor runways, poor weather, mountains and the attitudes of some local people help to make this a challenging environment.

Quoting B747-4U3 (Reply 1):

And is there a group of people in that area that built some fake airport to worship it?
