Trajkovski died on February 26, 2004 in a plane crash en route to an economic conference in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The aircraft crashed
in very poor weather (thick fog and heavy rain) on a mountainside in southeastern Herzegovina, near the villages of Huskovici and Rotimlja some eight
miles (15km) south-south-east of Mostar. Eight other people were also aboard but none survived the impact, which broke the aircraft into three pieces.
It came down in an area that had been heavily mined during the Bosnian War of the 1990s, which significantly hampered the rescue and recovery
In the months that followed, significant controversy emerged surrounding the accident. Some residents of Rotmilja village, near where the plane
crashed, have disputed the government's assertion that the field had been heavily mined, asserting that they were regularly using it
themselves. One witness claimed that he saw people emerging from the aircraft after the accident. SFOR soldiers were
on the scene within 30 minutes after the aircraft went down, yet emergency personnel and journalists were not allowed until later.
Official records state that the aircraft was located 24 hours after the time of the crash, yet his successor, Branko Crvenkovski officially declared
Trajkovski dead within hours. Lastly, new evidence suggests that the fire was not caused by kerosene, but a different
substance. Admist growing concern that it may have been an assassination, the case has been re-opened by the present government of
Although the cause of the crash is not known, it seems likely that it was the result of a controlled flight into terrain, possibly exacerbated by
alleged mistakes made by the SFOR air traffic controllers at Mostar Ortijes International Airport. The approach to the airport's Runway 34 has been
criticized by pilots for being difficult to handle, and as the runway is not equipped with precision landing systems, it is especially challenging in
bad weather. The crash is not the first major air accident to kill a politician in southern Herzegovina: on April 3, 1996, the United States Secretary
of Commerce Ronald Brown was killed while en route from Bosnia to Croatia.
