Flight Safety Considerations

  • Cumulonimbus, is a heavy and dense cloud of considerable vertical extent in the form of a mountain or huge tower, often associated with heavy precipitation, lightning and thunder. The mature Cumulonimbus cloud has a distinctive flat, anvil shaped top.
  • Volcanic Ash, encounter can result in engine damage and malfunction

Accidents & Serious Incidents at or in vicinity of WIIJ

  • B734, Yogyakarta Indonesia, 2007 (RE HF FIRE) (On 7 March 2007, a Boeing 737-400n being operated by Garuda landed on a scheduled passenger flight from Jakarta to Yogyakarta overran the end of the destination runway at speed in normal daylight visibility after a late and high speed landing attempt ending up 252 metres beyond the end of the runway surface in a rice paddy field. There was a severe and prolonged fire which destroyed the aircraft (see the illustration below taken from the Investigation Report) and 21 of the 140 occupants were killed, 12 seriously injured, 100 suffered minor injuries and 7 were uninjured.)
