JAKARTA: All five people on a test flight were killed in Indonesia on Saturday when their small plane crashed having changed one of its engines, a transportation ministry spokesman said. The Cassa aircraft of Sabang Merauke Raya Air Charter left Batam island and crashed on Bintan island, both in Riau Islands province. "The pilot, co-pilot and three technicians died in the accident. They were on a flight test after they changed one of the engines for the aircraft," transportation ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan said. Five police on a mission to help flood victims in eastern Indonesia were killed in October when their plane crashed into a tree during an emergency landing.
