I flew out of JOG in December.....It's an airport operating at the limit with regular extended inbound holds due to limited ramp space. There is also a busy military flying school sharing the runway. On the day I was there the place also closed due to storms in the area.

could well be weather related. Several aircraft were circling at the time.

Getting a bit of deja-vu, here.

You know it has to be Indonesia when another commercial airliner skids off the runway, closing the airport, and everyone kind of goes, "Meh".

The VP of corporate communications of Garuda Indonesia commented on the removal of the Boeing 737, with a picture of the damaged 737 included:

No doubt there will always be more of these types of accidents in that part of the world particularly as there seems to be a local culture of "real men don't go around."

No, but they do enjoy making animal noises on guard.

Are the runways grooved in Indonesia? I seem to remember reading somewhere they don't do that there for some dumb reason.

Grooved runways are all well and good if you have the means to carry out rubber removal on a planned maintenance regime and I cant imagine some airports in Asia would be able to afford the kit to do it. It takes more then a high pressure hose that's for sure and if you don't carry out rubber removal the braking coefficient is worse on a grooved runway with rubber build up then those that are not grooved.

Was on a Sempati flight in 1995 into JOG during a thunderstorm, fortunately the crew executed a go around. I hold a PPL and have been in a couple of precautionary landings and a wheels up in a float plane into Abu Dhabi International (all as a passenger) but that JOG flight is the only time I've been concerned for my well being. The 2007 accident at JOG made me realise how my flight might have ended.

Is there a week that goes by without a runway overrun in Indonesia? Probably safer to swim island to island over there!

.........probably safer to swim island to island over there!
No it's not. And the other options are worse.

If you use the old adage about the flight being safer than the drive to the airport and transpose that into Indonesia it takes on an order of magnitude that is hard to imagine, until you've been there.

Try to be a bit selective and, as with any travel, hope that it doesn't happen to you.

No it's not. And the other options are worse.I lived in Indonesia for a while and still visit regularly - WingNut is right, the options are worse.
The train might be safer but not practical for inter-island travel, the other options are definitely worse. :eek:
At least when you fly you're only scared for an hour or two - long distance bus, auto, and boat rides keep you in terror for much longer. :rolleyes:

That doesn't mean that the flying record is not atrocious in that country. It is.
