The Fokker F-27 turboprop was making a routine training flight when it crashed into the military housing complex in Jakarta on Thursday about 1.5 kilometers (nearly a mile) from the runway where it was trying to land. The dead were two children, their grandmother and aunt in one of the eight damaged houses, and the plane’s pilot, co-pilot and five trainees.
“Search and rescue efforts have been finished,” said air force spokesman Col. Agung Sasongko Jati on Friday morning. “All the wreckage has been removed and there is no more new victim.”
Eleven people were injured in the crash that sent raging orange flames jumping several meters into the air and a huge column of black smoke billowing over the homes. The two children killed were 2 and 6 and their grandmother and aunt had been visiting, Jati said.
