Duck Pilot, nobody here has posted or described anything suggesting overloading. The discussions are about how many pax can be carried within the capabilities of the aircraft. 11 PNGians, including a couple of kids, is well within the limitations of an Islander. I have flown in a few countries around the world, and, with the very rare exception, found PNG operators to be among the most conscious of weight limitations. If this accident had been caused by overloading, the aircraft would be near the pine trees on the side of the Oksapmin valley, not on approach to Kiunga.
