The wing section measuring around two metres by 1.5 metres fell from the Boeing 737 shortly after it left Jakarta's Sukarno-Hatta airport on a domestic flight, said Totok Suwarto, a senior official there.

A flap? Slat? Wing Panel? Surely not an entire wingtip...



I scratch my head, therefore I am.

I really doubt that the entire wingtip fell from the 737. If so was the case, they wouldn't land safe.
It has to be a 732, right???

Was it a panel.

Why do you think so.
Blame the Airline Mx not the Aircraft type.

Because it says it is a low cost carrier in Indonesia

I have not blamed the Aircraft type. I know it is the carriers fault.

From the description, I'd go with a flap. A slat isn't nearly that wide and a wing panel can't come off without completely losing structural integrity of the wing.

Without any other data to go on, it sounds like a broken flap spindle or track to me.

The story kept changing over here...

Quote:
1st we heard it was an A319 loosing a flap section and had to RTB.
Then we heard it was a 737 loosing a part of the skin and had to RTB.
Then the airline said the 737 returned not due to missing a skin section but due to to a hydraulic problem.
Then the airline denied the piece found on the ground was theirs.
Then the airport put the piece against the plane and found that it fits perfectly, so therefore they announced that info.
Then the airline said, "it's not that big, only 50x40cm"...
Last that I heard the airport said, "it is BIGGER than 50x40cm..."

Then news that there were more than 1 piece, one as large as 2m across... (5 pieces reported).

Aircraft involved was PK-YTP. Boeing 737-400

Many interesting things going on at Batavia, its 732 chief a month or two ago resigned or sacked when the airline found out he was giving simulator access to an unauthorized person (who is rumoured to be wanted by security in other airlines).

The allegations of crew roster "irregularities" were rife... with some claiming they "had to" fly 150hrs a month on a regular basis.

And Batavia is currently suing ATR and EADS to get their deposits back on purchasing ATRs... which they said "upon seeing the aircraft for ourselves, didn't live up to what it said in the brochure."... This, and the airline still expects Airbus to deliver more planes to them...

And just 2 days ago, the airline complained about photos on the internet of the cockpit of one if its A319s. Citing "the aircraft owner isn't happy that these photos were on the net and contained confidential information." *LOL*... is the aircraft registration and its sel-cal code confidential?

Actually, most of the carriers (low cost and full service) operates 733/4/5... Batavia still has a small number of -200, Mandala is down to 1 - 2 -200s, Adam is down to about 2 - 3 -200s (or is in the process of). Only Sriwijaya has a large fleet of -200s... 15 of them or so, and 1 733.

When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
