Pay to fly airline, now also for Captain Upgrades... congratulations Lionair for singlehandedly being responsible for almost half the worldwide incidents on B737
Get their AOC revoked NOW.

"A pilot landing a few mins earlier than the JT accident aircraft noted "conditions at the time were prone to windshear"

A quick look at the picture suggests it never made it to the runway as the perimeter fence seems intact. Any speculation on how it got there?

Well informed Indonesian aviation sources says the aircraft undershoot.
It never made the runway at landing at Denpassar airport. Runway is next to the ocean.

Aircraft is btw just two months old. Delivered by Boeing in February 2013 to Malindo (sister company of Lion Air based in Malaysia). After one month it went to Lion Air
Malindo Air - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Runway in use at Denpassar at time of crash was 09.

Bet the insurance will be interested in the details.
Boeing's recovery team is not going to fix this one....

It'll become a 'sunken wreck' for the scuba diving tourists.

AVherald reports the aircraft overrun after landing and went into the ocean.
Other reports mention it undershot:
1. runway 09 in use
2. aircraft is very close to final 09
3. windshear reported at 09
4. fence at 09 end still okay

Accident: Lionar B738 at Denpasar on Apr 13th 2013, overran runway and came to stop in sea

Li Ion

Doomed from the start.

Lion = Lithium Ion perhaps?

Great that all got out OK.

And just why did the hull crack where it did? At that point there should have been minimal forces compared to other areas.

Lion Air are about to offer a "great new opportunity for engineers". A $50000 down payment gets you a place on our exclusive "pay to repair" scheme.

Aside from how the aircraft ended up where it did, there should, at least be some credit for a successful evacuation. By all accounts, so far, all survived.

That rather depends on which part of the airframe hit the water first. As mentioned above, the apparently detached horizontal stabilizer might give a clue.
