Airbus Military Says C-212 Aircraft Had Accident in Indonesia

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Airbus Military, a subsidiary of European Aeronautic, Defence & Space Co., said a C-212 transport aircraft had an accident in the north Sumatran region of Indonesia. The company said it’s “premature” to speculate on the cause of the incident.

The C-212, which seats 24 to 26 passengers, has been in production for more than 30 years and is popular because it can handle rugged terrain and needs limited servicing. Spanish manufacturer Construcciones Aeronauticas SA, now part of EADS, delivered more than 480 planes to 43 countries since the first flight in 1971.
