Narrative:
A Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger plane was destroyed when it struck the side of a mountain during a demonstration flight over Indonesia. All 45 on board were killed.
The flight departed Jakarta-Halim Perdana Kusuma Airport (HLP/WIHH) at 14:00. It flew south and circled Mount Salak (elevation 7254 feet). After circling the mountain, the airplane began to descend from from 10,000 feet to 6,000 feet. Last contact with the flight was at 14:30. The wreckage was found the following morning on a near-vertical mountainside on the eastern side of Mount Salak at an elevation of 5,100 feet. There was no sign of survivors. Fatality index is presumed, not confirmed.

The Superjet was conducting a demonstration flight to prospective customers in several countries. Demonstrations were flown in Myanmar, Pakistan and Kazakhstan before arriving in Indonesia on May 9. Two demonstration flights were planned. The first flight was uneventful. Passengers on the second flight were reporters and representatives of several Indonesian airlines.
