Indonesia Military Plane Carrying Seven Crashes Into Houses

June 21 (Bloomberg) -- An Indonesian air force plane carrying seven people crashed into houses in Jakarta during a training flight.

The twin-engine Fokker F-27 turboprop went down near Halim Perdanakusuma Airport today, said Azman Yunus, an air force spokesman. The cause of the crash isn’t clear and victims are being rushed to a hospital, he said by phone.

Eight houses were set on fire following the crash, Yunus said separately on Metro TV. The accident would be the fifth fatal plane crash in Indonesia in the past year, based on a Flight Safety Foundation website.

Last month, 45 people were killed in the country when a Russian-made Sukhoi SuperJet crashed during a promotional flight.
