Accident: 42 km (26.3 mls) N of Oksibil Airport 02 August 2009. The aircraft was destroyed when it flew into the side of a mountain during a domestic flight from Jayapura to Oksibil Airport. The aircraft took off at 10:15 with an estimated time of arrival at Oksibil of 11:05. The pilots were operating under visual flight rules (VFR) procedures. This required them to remain clear of cloud. Ten minutes before impact the pilot in command mentioned climbing to 10,000 feet, and stated "if we cannot go visual I will turn left". The cockpit conversations did not exhibit any signs of stress or concern until two minutes before the impact, when the copilot mentioned haze and asked the captain if he could see. Fifty seconds before impact, the copilot expressed further concern and asked about the captain's intentions, and the captain said "climb, to the left". Forty-two seconds before impact the copilot asked if it was safe on the left. The copilot became increasingly uncertain about the safety of the flight, specifically mentioning visibility and speed. From the recorded sounds, it is apparent that 13 seconds before impact, engine power was increased symmetrically to a high power setting. The Twin Otter struck the side of a mountain at an elevation of 9300 feet. The wreckage was located 04-August with some difficulty because the ELT was unSeriesviceable. Three crew and 12 passengers were killed.

Total time at Aug-2009 27,336 hours.
