A CASA 212 cargo aircraft being operated on a domestic flight in Indonesia crashed on 26 January in Borneo, reportedly killing all three people on board.

Indonesia’s state-run Antara news agency says the aircraft was being operated by small carrier Dirgantara Air Service, or DAS.

It says the aircraft departed Juwata airport in Tarakan at 08:10 and was headed for Long Ampung in Malinau, in the province of East Kalimantan on the island of Borneo.

Wreckage was later spotted near the intended destination airport and Antara says the two pilots and one mechanic on board were all killed.

Until the crash the carrier’s fleet comprised eight CASA 212s which were built under licence by Indonesian Aerospace, according to Flight’s ACAS database.
