A Garuda Indonesia airline Boeing 737 carrying 51 passengers has crash landed into a river in Central Java, injuring several people, airport officials said.

The plane had been bound for the central Java city of Yogyakarta from the island of Lombok, near Bali, when it crash landed in the Bengawan Solo river some 30 kilometers north-east of its destination.

"No one was killed, the aircraft was not too damaged because it landed in the water, only the right wing was broken," said Hariyadi Subagyo, the head of the Yogyakarta airport administration.

I don't understand Bahasa very well, but orang means people, so presumably there were 54 people on board.

Bengawan Solo is a pretty famous river in Indonesia, which means the accident or inccident happened there. I think it's also mentioned that the Indonesian Antara news agency is the source of the news.

You don't hear of many successful ditchings, and if indeed this was one, then well done to the pilots!!

I wonder if this aircraft will be fixed, if not badly damaged? Probably not.....

Another thing, why did they need to crash land in a river enroute?

The aircraft involved appears to be PK-GWA, delivered back in 1989 which was operating GA 421 from Lombok to Yogyakarta and was apparently 20 minutes from landing. Appears to be no fatalities at this stage but all have been taken to hospitals. According to Garuda, the airplane will have all the water bailed out, they'll botch up the "broken" wing and send out a BP truck to refuel it and it will be on its merry little way....no problems whatsoever!!

Indonesia plane crash-lands in river

One woman has reportedly been killed after an Indonesian airline Boeing 737 crash-landed into a river about 25 kilometres (15 miles) north east of the central Javan city of Yogyakarta.
The AFP news agency quoted a doctor as saying a body, apparently that of a flight attendant, had been recovered.

Police said 12 out of the 54 passengers and six crew on board the Garuda national airline plane had been injured.

A statement from Garuda said all on board had been taken to hospitals in the nearby city of Solo.

The cause of the crash is not known but one passenger quoted by the local television network RCTI said the plane had been forced down by a combination of severe turbulence and bad weather.

The plane had been travelling from the resort island of Lombok to the ancient royal city of Yogyakarta, another popular tourist spot.

It came down in the Bangawan Solo River at 1635 (0935GMT), Garuda said.

The river cuts through a densely-populated rural area. Correspondents say the pilot may have chosen to set the plane down on the river as the land is covered with houses and rice fields.

In 1997, a Garuda Airbus A-300 crashed into a jungle as it approached Medan airport in northern Sumatra, hampered by thick smoke from forest fires. All 234 on board were killed
