Adam Air B737 Heavy Landing

Another accident/incident today involving Adam Air, reported hard/baulked landing at Surabaya.
Runway was blocked, airport closed, several injuries including pax trapped in the aircraft. Conflicting reports as to the extent of the damage.
Aircraft has been towed to Merpati Maintenance Center.

No matter how many accidents/incidents/writeoffs/loss of life, if they don't change, this will continue unfortunately. I guess they'll have to lower their lowest fares again now!

OK, airframe bent behind emergency exit, by about >3 degrees by the looks of it.

Windshear suspected.

That's what the news reports say e.g. Reuters and the Herald Tribune. Very bent, due to a hard landing.

2g landing? Arghhhhhh........................ airplane abuse? I beg your pardon!

Well i s'pose, they'd be able to hire some guys to fly the airplane for 2,000,000 rupiahs (US$200). Good luck, guys

Picture

Reuters has a picture, here. Any Boeing employees should exercise caution when viewing this image.

I am surprised that they are still operating. Why do people still want to fly with them?

Natalia Budihardjo, a regional spokeswoman for PT Adam Skyconnections Airlines, said "The sudden stop of the plane was the best decision by the pilot for the safety of the 130 passengers,"

Cool faintly amusing

You have all been duped my friends.

That is the new aerodynamic test bed for the Dreamliner Constellation series of Boeing- with banana shaped substitutes for drag reducing fairings once called Whitcombe bodies- a la Convair C990.

See how the excess heat of Indonesia has bent the locally cured carbon fried fibre?

Sour buyer it happende at you say - you better Adam Air and believe it...

You want bendy boeing mister- cheap cheap....

Jesus Christ, how long can a family owned company run for???

Non acceptable standards at all, but they keep on doing it...maybe they have some big shot in the government, who knows, sounds like it otherwise they'd be out of business long time ago...

Their logo should be; "Adam air, everytime you fly us you are closer to heaven"

Hehehehe....

Or rather closer to hell, since they seem more adept at attempting to drive their airplanes down INTO the earth than keeping them above it.

A better business plan for Adam Air:

Why not chose or let passengers fly the trips, sort of like a car rental? They could save the ridiculous high pilot wages they pay!!!

This could also make a new reality TV show-like Airline.
