Tower Tape Transcript of Garuda Flight 152

This transcript is from the tower tapes at Polonia airport near the Indonesian city of Medan, which was the intended destination of the ill-fated Garuda International Airlines Flight 152.

The pilot is identified by his flight number, GIA 152. All other flights in the transcript are from domestic airlines: MNA 241, a landing Merpati flight; and BOU 683, a departing Bouraq flight.
