    As many as 116 people are feared dead after an Indonesian military transport plane crashed into a residential neighborhood in the northern Sumatra city of Medan on tuesday. Authorities don't believe any of the 113 passengers and crew aboard the plan survived. The plane was on its way from an air base to the remote Natuna islands when it reportedly crashed just minutes after takeoff, and many of those on board are believed to be family of servicemembers. Forty-nine bodies have been recovered so far. The crash is the second time in a decade that a plane has crashed into a Medan neighborhood. In 2005, a Mandala Airlines Boeing 737 crashed into a residential area and killed 143, including 30 people on the ground.
