Officials in Indonesia's remote Papua region say a New Zealander was critically injured when the small plane he was piloting crashed into a mountainside.
They say the crash happened on Wednesday after an attempt to land the Cessna aircraft was aborted when a villager was spotted wandering onto the airstrip.
The aircraft flew away from the Paniai airstrip and crashed into a mountain some 11 kilometres away.
The New Zealander was rescued and taken to hospital but his Spanish co-pilot was killed.
The plane, operated by Susi Air, had been carrying food supplies to remote villages.
In September, an Australian and a Slovak pilot were killed when a plane owned by the same company crashed.
Like most airstrips in the remote area, the Paniai runway is not protected by a fence and is used by locals taking shortcuts and sometimes by children playing football.
