Narrative:
The Lockheed C-130B Hercules transport plane was lost in an accident during the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation, that started in 1963 from Indonesia's opposition to the creation of Malaysia. In 1964 Indonesian forces began attacking areas in the Malay Peninsula in what was known as the Dwikora Operation.
The C-130B, T-1306, was carrying paratroopers when it was hit by friendly fire. One of the two right hand engines caught fire, which developed onto the wing.
All paratroopers were forced to bail out over the forest from low altitude. The flight crew made an emergency landing at Long Bawan, saving the remaining 17 flight crew and passengers, including five jumpmasters.

Classification:
Shot down from the ground
Forced landing on runway
