A plane has crash-landed in the ocean after overshooting a runway on the tiny island of Weno, north-west of Papua New Guinea.

Local authorities confirmed the airliner - which was en route to Papua New Guinea from Micronesia - missed the runway and crashed into the water around 9.30am Friday local time.

Miraculously, all 35 passengers and 12 crew members are alive, but plane was submerged and one passenger was injured.
