Little hope of survivors in Indonesian military plane crash

Published Jun 30




In September 2005, a Mandala Airlines Boeing 737 crashed into a crowded residential community shortly after takeoff from Medan’s Polonia airport, killing 143 people including 30 on the ground.

Rescuers with heavy machinery searched a shattered residential neighborhood Tue for any survivors from an Indonesian air force transport plane that crashed shortly after takeoff and killed more than seventy people.

The C-130 Hercules, carrying military personnel and their families, went down in Indonesia’s third-largest city of Medan, striking a building. Witness accounts suggested the plane suffered an engine fire before crashing.

Air force spokesman Rear Marshal Dwi Badarmanto commented 74 bodies were recovered. About thirty of the dead were identified and included air force personnel and relatives, he added.
