Най-напред
28 души загинаха в самолетна катастрофа, а по-късно островната държава в Южния Пасифик бе разлюляна от силно земетресение.
Самолетът се разбил на 20 км южно от Маданг. Сред оцелелите са австралийски и новозеландски пилот, стюардът и пътник-китаец. Самолетът
Даш 8 (P2-MCJ),на авиокомпанията Airlines PNG летял от град Лае до курорта Маданг, когато попаднал в силна буря. Повечето от пътниците били родители, пътуващи за церемонията по дипломирането на децата им в университета в Маданг.
Докато страната оплакваше жертвите, бе ударена от трус с магнитуд 6,7. Този и други подобни случаи на непосредствена последователност "авиокатастрофа - земетресение"създават впечатление за връзка между тези събития.

The Airlines PNG
Dash 8 airplane (P2-MCJ) crashed while flying from Lae to the resort hub of Madang, Papua New Guinea.
The twin-propeller plane went down in bad weather 20 kilometers south of Madang
killing 28 occupants. There were four survivors – three crew members and a passenger.
Most of the passengers were parents travelling to attend their children's university graduation ceremony in Madang this weekend, according to the Australian Associated Press news agency.
Two pilots, one Australian and one from New Zealand, were among those who survived Thursday's crash. One flight attendant and one passenger also survived. One of the survivors told a nurse he fled the burning wreckage through a crack in the fuselage.
The pilot, Capt. Bill Spencer, 64, who survived the crash, has 45 years flying experience, including 35 years in Papua New Guinea, the airline said. First Officer Campbell Wagstaff, who also survived, has more than 2,500 hours flying experience.
Airlines PNG said it has launched a full investigation into the cause and will be examining potential factors including weather, fuel and possible mid-air fire or mechanical problems. The airline said it has temporarily grounded its 11 remaining Dash 8 aircraft.
Four investigators from Australia's Air Transport Safety Bureau arrived in Port Moresby to assist the PNG Air Investigation Commission.
