WATCH: Trigana Air Boeing 737-400 veers off runway in Indonesia

Aviation Updates Philippines – A Trigana Air Boeing 737-4Y0 freighter, with registry PK-YSF, veered off the runway during its landing at the Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport in Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday.

The aircraft was on a cargo run from Jakarta to Medan and took off at 11:28 am local time. After departure, the crew stopped climbed at 3,000 feet due to problems with the right-hand main landing gear. 

According to The Aviation Herald, the aircraft entered a hold as the crew attempted to resolve the issue. 35 minutes after departure, the crew made the call to return to the departure airport.

As seen on the video, the aircraft touched down on its left gear. The aircraft's right engine touched the ground on the landing roll, seemingly suggesting that the right gear did not fully deploy. The 737 veered off the runway as the landing roll concluded.

Fortunately, none were reported to be injured, according to Indonesia's Ministry of Transportation. The incident, however, forced the closure of the airport as the disabled aircraft blocked its only runway. A notice to airmen (NOTAM) released states: "RWY 06/24 CLSD DUE TO BLOCKED BY ACFT."

All landings and departures at Halim airport have been diverted to Soekarno–Hatta International Airport — Jakarta's primary airport.
