GA 738 Off Runway In Pekanbaru

Tue Jul 17, 2012 2:53 pm

Aircraft veered off runway and is stuck with all the gears in the mud. No injuries and, in the picture, no serious damages to the frame either.
Another close call in Indonesia.... and this is the number ? 8 ? 12 ? I really miss the counting...

The sheer level of runway excursions in Indonesia is outstanding and would not be accepted in other countries.
It seems to be on the increase, but maybe it's just better media access these days.
As we know not all airports have flat, obstacle free run off areas, so other flights do not always end up with as happy an ending.
