Homes searched in Indonesian crash that killed 11
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Rescuers Friday resumed searching burned-out houses struck by an Indonesian air force plane that crashed into the military housing complex and ignited a huge fireball in the capital, killing 11 people.
The dead were two children, their grandmother and an aunt in one of the eight damaged homes, and the seven people on the plane — the pilot, co-pilot and five trainees.
The Fokker F-27 was making a routine training flight when it crashed in a neighborhood in eastern Jakarta about 1.5 kilometers (nearly a mile) from the runway where it was trying to land, the military said.
Raging orange flames jumped several meters into the air and a huge column of black smoke billowed over the homes. Eleven people were injured.
