MIMIKA, Indonesia, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Searchers said Tuesday they found the bodies of four people who died in a cargo plane crash in Indonesia's Papua province.
The Trigana Air cargo plane, a DeHavilland Canada DHC-4 propeller-driven plane, was found at an elevation of about 12,000 feet in Indonesia's Jawawijaya mountain range, Henry Bambang Soelistyo of Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency said. Radio contact with the plane was lost about an hour after it left Timika on Monday morning while traveling to Ilaga; each is a town in eastern Indonesia in Papua province, on the island Indonesia shares with Papua New Guinea.
The four aboard the plane died instantly, the Jakarta Globe said Tuesday. KNKT, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee, is investigating the accident.
A Trigana plane crashed in Papua province in August 2015; 54 people, including passengers and crew members, were killed.
