Plane Was Reportedly Landing In Rain
At least 13 people onboard a CASA 212 turboprop were injured
Monday after their plane overran the runway at an airport on the
eastern Indonesian island of Banda.
Local media sources report rain and storms in the area when the
regional airliner attempted to land Monday morning. The Antara News
agency said the plane's wings, landing gear, and engine were
damaged in the accident.
The Merpati Nusantara plane was arriving from the town of Masohi
on Seram Island, said Abdullah Akhir, chief of a local medical
clinic that was treating the victims. None of the injuries appeared
serious, he added.
A spokesman for the airline said there were 14 passengers on the
airliner, plus a crew of three. Representatives with Merpati
Nusantara were enroute to investigate.
