The Gulfstream II jet operated on a flight from Tokyo, Japan to Jakarta, Indonesia. A refueling stop was planned at Kota Kinabalu Airport, Malaysia.
After passing the VJN VOR the crew were cleared to descend to 9500 feet. A further clearances was given to 6000 feet. After reporting 21 DME South of the airport, the flight was cleared down to 3000 feet. They were told to expect a clearance to turn finals for runway 02 after passing 4000 feet. At 06:10 UTC the crew reported at 4000 feet at 29 DME South of the airport. The controller then stated: "You are cleared to ... join final for runway zero two, descend to two thousand five hundred." This was the last contact with the flight.
One of the flight crew members then remarked: "Weíre getting pretty close to the hills here." Shortly after deciding to initiate a climb, the aircraft impacted a 4100 feet high hill just below the top.
