An Indonesian army helicopter carrying five people went missing Thursday over Borneo island, an official said, the latest blow to the country's accident-prone military.
Local search and rescue chief Mujiono, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, said a team of military personnel and search and rescue officials had been sent to the area where the aircraft was believed to have disappeared.
Mujiono said the helicopter was carrying five people and supplies for soldiers when it lost contact.
The Indonesian military has been hit with a number of aircraft accidents in recent years.
The worst accident in recent times was in June 2015, when an air force Hercules C-130 crashed into a residential neighbourhood in the city of Medan, killing 142 people and causing widespread destruction.Last Mod: 24 Kasım 2016, 15:45
