The reason behind the crash is uncertain. Immediately after the accident there were allegations of foul play because of the death of the Chief Minister, but no evidence of such has ever been found. Datuk Peter Mojuntin(36 at that time), the Golden son of Kadazans, was the father of now Sabah Finance Assistant Minister and UPKO’ s Information Officer, Y.B Donald Mojuntin. Ironically, Donald Mojuntin was probably named after Tun Donald Stephens himself, a Kadazandusun Huguan Siou at that time.
The aircraft was an Australian designed and built Nomad.
