happened at Malang on monday afternoon.
JP says the 727-200 (??) skidded of the rwy in heavy rainfall after about 1000 m nearly hitting a tree before it came to a stop.
Air Force personnel "sealed off" the accident site from arriving journalists...
Isnt Mandala a semi-military controlled company ?

Just another dodgy Indo airline. Just look at the national safety records over the last 3 years, incl Mandala's crash on t/o at Medan not so long back. Phewwww!

Almost as good as Lion a couple of years ago at Pekanbaru, had already rotated 737, captain changes his mind, puts it back on the runway, and then straight off the end ! I stopped flying Singapore-Pekanbaru with Lion after that, as with this incident they sort of confirmed what had been in the back of my mind on previous flights :uhoh:

Yep it a semi-military controlled company, as in any military you never leave a man behind, in this case a mandalay. always look after your own.
i think it is 90% is ex-military..i expect they still think its a single pilot sortie...chocks aways lads.:ok:
