Freighter crash in Indonesia

A SUSI Air Cessna 208-B freighter carrying a cargo of fuel disappeared in remote eastern Indonesia on 9 September.

Rescuers found the bodies of the two pilots – Australian David Cootes and Slovakian Thomas Munk – on 12 September in the mountainous Yahukimo district of West Papu.

Thick fog and bad weather had prevented search and rescue teams from getting to the remote crash site earlier. The incident is under investigation.
