A local aviation official said 105 people crew were on board Chinese-built Shaanxi Y-8 aircraft.

The military announcement said Myanmar received the Y-8 plane in March a year ago, and since then it had logged 809 flying hours.

A Myanmar military plane carrying more than 100 people has gone missing between Yangon and the southern city of Myeik, officials said. The military later said those on board included 106 soldiers and family members and 14 aircraft staff.

"Communication was lost suddenly at about 1:35 p.m. (07:05 GMT) when it reached about 20 miles west of Dawei town", the office of military commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing said in a statement.


Kyaw Kyaw Htey said the weather had been "normal" with good visibility when the plane took off.

The military launched the search soon after the plane went missing, mobilising six navy ships and three military planes.

The search went on as darkness fell. "We haven't seen any trace of the plane yet", Naing Myo Thwin told Reuters by telephone. Life jackets and a plane tire were found earlier. It was carrying 2.4 tons of supplies, the military said.

Freelance journalist Kayleigh Long, based in Myanmar, reported 90 "military personnel" were on the domestic flight.
