An Indonesian airliner lost contact with ground control Sunday morning during a short flight in bad weather through a mountainous patch of the country. The plane was carrying 54 passengers. There are numerous eyewitness reports saying the plane crashed into a valley before reaching the airport. The weather near Oksibil, where the plane was supposed to land, got bad as the plane lost contact shortly before it was scheduled to land. The Papua region, where the plane was flying, is covered in jungles and some planes that have disappeared there before have never been recovered. Trigana, the airline in question, has had 14 serious incidents since beginning operations in the region in 1991.
