The Lockheed C-130 Hercules transport plane, operated by the Indonesian Air Force's 32 Squadron, was destroyed when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Medan-Soewondo Air Force Base. On board were a crew of 12 and 110 passengers.
The aircraft took off at 11:48 hours local time (04:48 UTC) from runway 23 at Soewondo Air Force Base. Shortly after takeoff the crew radioed that they were returning to base. About two minutes later the aircraft impacted buildings and crashed. A fire erupted.
An Air Force spokesman reported that the no. 4 engine had failed on takeoff. At a low rate of climb the airplane reportedly impacted a 100 feet (30 m) high antenna before it impacted a spa business.

There are conflicting reports about the number of occupants and fatalities. The Indonesian Air Force reported that there were 122 persons on board the Hercules. On July 4 a local commissioner reported that there 121 people on the flight manifest: 38 military personnel on board the plane and 83 civilians.
No one aboard the Hercules survived the accident. The number of ground casualties is unclear. At least three residents were injured. Eight employees of the spa business were among the dead. Likely some construction workers were among the victims as well. The deputy head of disaster victim identification unit of the North Sumatra Police Headquarters stated that 139 bodies were recovered.
According to a hospital official 119 bodies had been identified by July 6.
