An Aviocar passenger plane of Pelita Air Service was en route between Palembang and Jakarta, Indonesia, when the no. 2 engine failed. Altitude could not be maintained and the airplane began a gradual descent over sea. All luggage and two ground fire extinguishers were thrown overboard, but the descent was not arrested. Eventually a ditching became inevitable. The airplane came down in the northern part of Banten Bay, approx 90 km WNW from Jakarta.

It is understood that the takeoff weight on departure from Palembang was 18,192 lb, which was over the 16,160 lb maximum takeoff weight. The weight of two ground fire extinguishers and a GPU which were carried on board as cargo were probably underestimated.
