Narrative:The Caribou departed Mulia (LII) on a flight to Wamena (WMX). An intermidiate stop was planned at Mamit. Directional control was lost on landing. The Caribou went into bushes and broke in two. The sod over gravel runway was probably still wet as a result of recent rainfall. Mamit, altitude 4400 feet, has a single runway (11/29) which has a slope 9.0% down to the east with an abrubt dropoff at the end. The runway also has a sideslope. Landings are only permitted on runway 29.
