On 20 September 2014, a de Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 aircraft, registered P2-KSF, collided with terrain 12 km north-east of Jacksons International Airport, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Four of the 9 occupants were fatally injured.

An investigation into the circumstances of the accident was conducted by the PNG Accident Investigation Commission (AIC). The AIC requested assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) with the download and analysis of information from various components including a cockpit voice recorder (CVR), forward-looking cockpit video camera and an enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) computer. To facilitate this support and to provide the appropriate protections for the CVR information, the ATSB appointed an accredited representative in accordance with paragraph 5.23 of ICAO Annex 13 and commenced an investigation under the Australian Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

The PNG AIC published its final investigation report (AIC 14-1005) on 3 August 2015.

The report is available from the AIC website: www.aic.gov.pg.
