Uneven weight and balance causes air crash in Kiunga

This is one of the findings in the Accident Investigation Commission (AIC) Final Report into the accident which occurred 1.2 km west of the Kiunga Aerodrome last year.

It is also revealed that the lack of communication between the aircraft and Air Traffic Services (ATS) before the accident failed to indicate any emergency situation the aircraft was in.

On the afternoon of April 13, 2016, a Sunbird Aviation Ltd aircraft departed Tekin in West Sepik enroute to Kiunga in Western Province.
