(3/6/2006)

Lion Air IW 8987 on a flight from Bali to Surabaya on Saturday, March 4, 2006, skidded off the runway during its landing in Surabaya.

According to passenger accounts published in the Indonesian-language Kompas, the aircraft, a MD-82 with 156 passengers on board, began weaving shortly after touching down at Surabaya's Juanda airport before entering into a skid and coming to a rest on its belly 40 meters off the runway's edge. There were no injuries reported among the passengers who evacuated the jet using the emergency exits.

The aircraft departed Bali at 4 p.m. on Saturday, 45 minutes behind its scheduled departure time, reportedly after having its front wheel replaced. The plane later touched down in Surabaya at 4:23 local time, losing control on the landing roll and ending up on a field adjacent to the runway. The incident forced the airport to halt operations for more than one hour, with 9 departing flights delayed and 4 inbound flights diverting to Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport.

One of Indonesia's new budget carriers, Lion Air has experienced a number of mishaps and crashes all involving landings with MD-82 aircraft since it began formal operations in June 2000. As reported by Kompas, in addition to the latest bad landing, recent aviation incidents involving Lion Air MD-82 equipment, include:

• July 3, 2004 – A Lion Air MD-82 aircraft (JT9332) flying from Jakarta to Palembang in South Sumatra skidded upon landing and came to rest 175 meters from the runway.

• November 30, 2004 – A Lion Air MD-82 aircraft flying from Jakarta to Solo (Central Java) with 156 passengers on board skidded off the runway at Solo's Adi Sumarno airport. 23 passengers died and 61 passengers were injured in that mishap.

• January 3, 2005 – A Lion Air MD-82 (JT791) flying from Ambon to Ujung Pandang (Makassar) skidded off the runway.

• May 6, 2005 - A Lion Air MD-82 (JT778) flying from Jakarta to Manado in North Sulawesi experienced a burst landing wheel during an intermediate stop at Ujung Pandang's Hasanuddin airport.

• January 18, 2006 - A Lion Air MD-82 (JT778) skidded off the runway when landing at Ujung Pandang's Hasanuddin airport.
