Air Niugini issued a statement confirming the plane had been damaged.
Makes it sound like a couple of days in the hangar and it will be flying again.

The land of a thousand tribes and a thousand languages, it has always been a volatile place, and not getting any better.
A very sad development, I feel very sorry for the government, the police and the army, there is no easy solution, and maybe just no solution.
I enjoyed my time up there with PX, not sure I would want to be there now.
Tootle pip!!
