A Trigana Air plane has disappeared over Papua New Guinea while carrying 54 people. Flight TGN267 left the Sentani airport in the country, but never arrived in its destination in Oksibil. A transport official has reported that villagers have said they saw the plane crash in the jungle and have found the wreckage.
Trigana Air, an Indonesian company, is banned from flying in the EU airspace due to its poor safety records. Search efforts for any wreckage have been hindered by poor weather over Papua New Guinea, which likely contributed to the crash.
