On 20 March, a Trigana Air Boeing 737-400 (registered PK-YSF) operated a cargo flight between Jakarta Halim and Makassar, Indonesia. Just after departure at Jakarta Airport, however, the pilots suffered a technical issue with the aircraft’s right main landing gear.
The decision was made to return to Jakarta. The aircraft landed on the left main gear, nose gear and right engine pod. Shortly after, the aircraft skidded off the runway and came to a stop with all gears collapsed. None of the four crew members was injured.
Following footage and images appeared on social media:
