    Jayapura: A Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) aircraft, with registration PK-MEC, crashed into Lake Sentani on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at around 6:27 a.m. local time after departing from Sentani to Mamit, Tolikara Regency, Papua Province.

    The aircraft crashed two minutes following departure, Commander of the Silas Papare Air Base First Marshal Tri Bowo confirmed here on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.

    A witness aboard another plane remarked that the Kodiac airplane crashed into the lake, some two nautical miles south of the Sentani Airport’s radar.
