A Cessna 208B Grand Caravan sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Ilaga Airport, Papua, Indonesia.
The aircraft apparently touched down hard, causing severe damage to the undercarriage. The left hand main gear leg separated, along with the left hand stabilizer. The right-hand main gear leg bent upwards, causing the belly pod to scrape along the runway.

According to a MAF document the aircraft was repaired. However, the aircraft was deregistered from the Indonesian register on 26/01/2018. It was registered N140RF in 2023.
