Video: Plane skids off runway during emergency landing in Indonesia
The plane was returning to base shortly after takeoff due to a technical issue.
A cargo plane in Indonesia skidded off the runway while it was attempting to land shortly after takeoff due to a technical issue.
According to Bloomberg, Trigana Air’s Boeing 737-400 was scheduled to fly to Makassar, South Sulawesi, but returned to Halim Perdanakusumah Airport about two minutes after takeoff on Saturday.
AirNav spokesman Yohanes Harry Douglas Sirait said that because the aircraft was blocking multiple runways, several flights had to be diverted to Soekarno Hatta Airport in Banten, West Java.
Sirait also confirmed that the National Transportation Safety Committee has opened an investigation into the incident.
