Narrative:
A Cessna Citation II jet plane went missing during a survey flight out of Korla, China, with three crew members on board.
The airplane took off around 16:00 from Korla Airport, heading north on a survey mission above the mountain range in Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture of Bayingolin. Initial search missions in that region failed to locate the plane. It was then assumed that the plane may have strayed off course, crashing in Manas County, Hui Autonomous Prefecture of Changji.
