Indonesian jet bursts into flames upon landing
Posted: 07 March 2007 0838 hrs

JAKARTA : A passenger jet burst into flames on landing in the central Indonesian city of Yogyakarta on Wednesday, witnesses told local radio.
"The plane is burnt. The fire came suddenly from the front wheel," one witness, Hariman, told ElShinta radio.

There was no immediate mention of casualties, and the number of passengers aboard the jet was not immediately known.

The Detikcom news website said the plane was a jet from the country's flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

Another passenger who escaped the blaze told ElShinta radio there were still passengers aboard as the fire raged.

Looking at footage on local Metro tv here the aircraft is totally burnt out apart from the tail.
Reports that some passengers were still on board when the fire took hold and bodies have been carried from the wreck.
Dozens of passenegers en-route to local hospitals
Reports of fire from the nosewheel. Also suggestions the aircraft overran the runway.
The weather in the footage from Metro tv looks fine

Can't recall which local news channel here in SoCal, but it was stated that there were several Australian Government Personnel onboard.

Early news of course and certainly subject to application of fact versus embellishment.

Certainly a sad string of calamity for the region.

Bless them.

JAKARTA, March 7 (Reuters) - A jet from Indonesia's state
carrier Garuda crashed and burst into flames on landing at
Yogyakarta airport on Wednesday morning with 140 passengers and
crew on board, according to Garuda officials.
Casualties were not immediately clear, but survivors said
many people had escaped the burning plane.
"The manifest shows 133 passengers and we have seven active
crew on board," a Garuda spokeswoman told Reuters.
Australian media said the plane's passengers included
Australian journalists and diplomatic staff. The journalists
had been covering a visit to Indonesia by Foreign Minister
Alexander Downer, who was not on the plane but had been
expected in Yogyakarta later in the day.
"It happened when it overshot beyond the runway and burst
into flames," Yogyakarta provincial secretary Bambang Susanto
told Reuters through texted messages.
"... we know that there are passengers being treated at the
air force hospital," he added. Elshinta news radio said 16
injured people had been taken to hospital.
"The plane overshot the runway during landing and hit the
airport fences," Julianto, one of the survivors, told Metro TV
"I was sitting at the back of the plane and people started
to jump out of the plane after that. Some even jumped into the
paddy field," he said.
The plane's fuselage was burned to a twisted shell, and
thick white smoke spewed from the wreckage.
State news agency Antara said the flight number was GA-200,
which would be a Jakarta to Yogyakarta flight that is generally
using a Boeing 737.
Indonesia has suffered from a string of transport accidents
in recent months, including an Adam Air plane that disappeared
in January with 102 passengers and crew on board, and a ferry
sinking in late December in which hundreds died.

The emergency numbers quoted above do not appear to be correct for IDD dialling.

They probably should be:

IDD prefix (011 for NA, 00 elsewhere)

and then 6221 2311393
or 6221 2311801 Ext 7205

Excerpts from an AP story by CHRIS BRUMMITT, Associated Press Writer:

The Garuda airlines jet shook violently as it prepared to land and then overshot the runway, hitting fences and slamming into a rice field shortly before 7 a.m., survivors said.

Many passengers escaped and rescuers battled flames to reach those trapped inside, said Capt. Ari Sapari, operations director of national carrier Garuda. The blaze, which gutted the aircraft and sent black smoke billowing into the air, took two hours to put out.

Howard said Indonesian officials had confirmed 49 deaths, though it was not clear where that information came from.

Laras Widhyo, from Garuda's Yogyakarta office, said at least 22 were killed and 92 were being treated at three hospitals, some with broken bones and burns. He said some passengers were thought to have walked away from the accident, making it difficult to confirm the death toll.

The state-owned airline said that 140 passengers and crew were on board. Howard said around 10 Australians were aboard the plane, but he could not confirm any Australian deaths.

The Australians on board were diplomatic staff and journalists who were traveling from the capital, Jakarta, ahead of Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer and Attorney-General Phillip Ruddock, who had been due to attend a function later Wednesday. Neither official was aboard the stricken plane.

There was no immediate word on what sparked the blaze. Survivors said it began at the front the plane before engulfing the aircraft.

"Before the plane landed it was shaking. Suddenly there was smoke inside the fuselage, it hit the runway and then it landed in a rice field," local Islamic leader Dien Syamsudin told El-Shinta. "I saw a foreigner. His clothes were on fire and I jumped from the emergency exit. Thank God I survived."...

...Another survivor told local TV station RCTI TV that "before landing I felt the plane shake strongly."

"We overshot the runway, then I heard the sound of an explosion and ran through an emergency exit," continued passenger Muhammad Dimyati. "I believe many passengers remained trapped on board."

From the Vision so far,

I am unable to make out the cockpit area - the forward fuselage seems to be 'missing' from just forward of the forward door - does anybody know if the crew made it out of there?
