ALI MOORE, PRESENTER: Emergency services have reached the site of yesterday's plane crash in Papua
New Guinea. The airline's PNG flight crashed in dense forest 20 kilometres from Madang, killing 28
people. Four people survived, including the Australian and New Zealand pilots. Authorities say the
plane was flying from Lae to Madang on PNG's north coast when it went down in stormy weather. The
airline has grounded its fleet of 12 Dash-8 planes until further notice.
