IT has been reported that an Indonesia plane has gone missing which has three infants on board. Contact with the plane was lost 30 minutes prior to landing.
The plane, owned by Aviastar Mandiri airlines, was travelling between Masamba and Makassar. A rescue team has been sent to search for the aircraft on the island of Sulawesi.
The plane was carrying three crew and seven passengers, including three children, from Masamba in the same province.
Indonesia has a patchy aviation safety record and has had three major air crashes over the past year, including an AirAsia flight that went down in the sea on a flight from Bali to Singapore in late December, killing all 162 people on board.
Aviastar Mandiri, which mainly offers domestic flights, has been banned from operating in the European Union because of its safety record.
