Security forces and rescue teams examine the wreckage of an Indonesian military C-130 Hercules transport plane after it crashed into a residential area in the North Sumatra city of Medan, Indonesia.
Listed below is the latest installment of global aircraft incidents, continuing on from these earlier compilations here
. A total of 149 such reports have been compiled for the 30 days of June. Once again this tally does not claim to be comprehensive, as its very likely that many 'minor' accidents, especially away from the English-speaking world, will have been missed.
Sadly, (and as intimated in the last report that something like this might be on the cards) on the last day of the month another major accident involving an Indonesian aircraft (military) occurred and the combined death total from both the plane and on the ground currently stand at over 140 victims and is likely to increase.
