[Updated*] 141 Killed After Military C-130 Crashes in Indonesian Town

Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN)Crews combed the smoldering wreckage of a military plane crash in Indonesia Tuesday as family members of the victims searched for answers.

Military personnel and their family members, civilians and some students were among the passengers onboard a C-130 Hercules plane that left Jakarta Tuesday and made two stops before crashing near a residential neighborhood in Medan, Indonesia. So far, 86 bodies have been recovered from the crash site, said Zulkifli, an Indonesian Red Cross official who goes by a single name.

Air Marshal Agus Supriatna, Indonesia's air force commander, said the C-130 Hercules initially took off from Jakarta's Halim Perdanakusuma Airport on Tuesday with 122 people aboard -- 110 passengers and 12 crew members. But it is not certain how many people were on the plane when it crashed. It made two stops along the way to Medan, in Pekanbaru and Dumai.

Local television broadcast images of crowds gathering around the wreckage of the plane amid damaged buildings and a charred car. Black smoke rose among scorched buildings.

It was not known what caused the disaster.

Maj. Gen. Fuad Basya, an Indonesian military spokesman, said the aircraft, built in the United States in the 1960s, had been inspected and cleared to fly before it took off from Soewondo Air Force Base in Medan. The crash site is about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the air base, he said.

The plane was carrying logistical supplies for bases on other Indonesian islands. Sometimes, Indonesian civilians also hitch rides on military flights to get to islands which might otherwise be inaccessible.

The military set up command posts in Jakarta and Medan to help the victims' families, Supriatna said.

Indonesia's national news agency Antara reported that the plane hit a busy road that connects Medan with the highland tourist resort of Brastagi.

Re: 86 Killed After Military C-130 Crashes in Indonesian Town

Indonesian officials say 141 bodies have been recovered after a military transport plane crashed in a residential area of Medan on Tuesday.
The military says none of the 122 people on board the Hercules C-130 survived when it hit houses and a hotel before bursting into flames.
Many of the victims are thought to have been relatives of servicemen and women.
But the latest death toll indicates there were at least 19 people killed on the ground.
The BBC's Alice Budisatrijo in Jakarta says the military has repeatedly revised the passenger list, a sign of how loosely the military keeps track of who gets on its planes.
It is also investigating whether some of those on board were paying passengers which is not permitted, she adds.
Police official Agustinus Tarigan told reporters at a Medan hospital on Wednesday morning that 141 bodies had been received.
One official told the Jakarta Globe newspaper that some of the victims were having to be identified by blood samples.
'Fire and smoke'
The cause of the crash is not yet known, but witnesses said the plane appeared to run into trouble shortly after taking off from Medan - Indonesia's third largest city - for Tanjung Pinang, an island off Sumatra.
"It passed overhead a few times, really low," a witness named Elfrida Efi told the Reuters news agency.
"There was fire and black smoke. The third time it came by it crashed into the roof of the hotel and exploded straight away."
Air Force head Agus Supriatna said on Tuesday that the pilot had asked to return to base because of technical difficulties.
"The plane crashed while it was turning right to return to the airport,'' he said.
