Wreckage of Indonesian turboprop plane found.

JAKARTA, Dhu-AlHijjah 21, 1436, October 05, 2015, SPA -- Indonesian authorities on Monday said they had found the wreckage of an Aviastar airline Twin Otter turboprop aircraft that went missing over Sulawesi island last week with 10 people on board, Reuters reported.

The plane was found in the Enrekang region, around 240 km (150 miles) from the port city of Makassar in South Sulawesi, MetroTV said.

The Aviastar plane lost contact with airport authorities on Friday during a flight from the town of Masamba about 30 minutes before it was scheduled to land in Makassar.
