31 May 2017 - 737-300, PK-CJC (24025 / 1556), FF 1988, operated by Sriwijaya Air overran Rrunway 17/35 by 30m whilst landing on runway 35 in heavy rain at Rendani Airport, Manokwari, West Papua, Indonesia (WAUU) at 08:51L (23:51GMT). The passengers and crew evacuated the aircraft but there were no reported injuries.

A company spokesman is reported as telling local media "The aircraft landed at 08:51 local time…at that point of time there was heavy rain, which led to aircraft overrunning the runway. 146 passengers were aboard the aircraft, which was operating flight SJ570 from Sorong to Manokwari."

Rendani's only runway, 17/35 is 2000 x 45 meters asphalt. Approach guidance facilities such as PAPI lights and runway lights were all serviceable.

Note that on 13 Apr 2010 another 737-300, PK-MDF, operated by Merpati Nusantara also overran the runway at Rendani Airport in rain. The aircraft was destroyed but there were no fatalities.
