Indonesian Air Force Fokker F-27 400M plane crash
The Indonesian Air Force Fokker F-27 Friendship 400M was returning to Bandung, Indonesia, from a parachuting exercise. Six crew, an instructor and 17
special forces trainees were onboard the aircraft. On landing the airplane hit a hangar near the runway threshold. None of the 24 on board survived. There
were no other casualties on the ground.
The Fokker 27 plane was returning from a regular training flight. It was supposed to land in Bandung, 110km southeast of Jakarta. The crash occurred as the pilot was trying to land in a heavy storm. There was a 20-knot crosswind at the time of the accident. The plane appeared to be shaking before diving to the ground and crashed on a hangar. The plane blew apart inside the hangar, which had several airplanes and helicopters inside.
