Fatal Papua New Guinea aircraft accidents ‘not investigated’
5 April 2008

The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper reported that Papua New Guinea authorities have failed to properly investigate 19 aircraft accidents which have killed 16 people. Lack of funds and facilities are blamed for the failure of PNG’s Civil Aviation Authority and Department of Transport to fully investigate these plane and helicopter crashes since 2000, despite legislation in 2004 establishing an Air Accident Commission.
