1.1 History of the Flight
On 31 May 2017, a Boeing 737-300 aircraft registration PK-CJC was being operated by PT. Sriwijaya Air as a scheduled passenger flight from Hasanuddin Airport (WAHH), Makassar, South Sulawesi to Rendani Airport (WAUU), Manokwari1, West Papua, with one transit stop at Domine Eduard Osok Airport (WASS) Sorong, West Papua.

At 2331 UTC, the pilot made first contact to Rendani Tower controller and informed that the aircraft was descending from FL 230 (altitude 23,000 feet) and requested the weather information. The Rendani Tower controller informed to the pilot that the wind was calm, ground visibility 6 km, cloud3 FEW CB 1,400 feet, temperature and dew point 26/25°C.
At 2336 UTC, Rendani Tower controller instructed to the pilot to descend to 11,000 feet and to report when on Visual Meteorological Condition (VMC).
At 2338 UTC, the pilot informed that they were on VMC condition and passed altitude 13,000 feet while position was 32 Nm from ZQ NDB (Non-Directional Beacon). Rendani Tower controller instructed to fly maintain on visual condition, fly via overhead, descend to circuit altitude, join right downwind runway 35, and to report when overhead Manokwari.
At 2344 UTC, the pilot reported that the aircraft was over Manokwari and Rendani Tower controller informed to the pilot that the visibility changed to 5 km. Two minutes later Rendani Tower controller instructed to the pilot to continue approach and to report on right base runway 35.
At 2349 UTC, at approximately 600 feet, the PIC as PM took over control by called “I have control” and the SIC replied “You have control”. A few seconds later the pilot reported that the aircraft was on final runway 35, and Rendani Tower controller instructed to the pilot to report when the runway 35 insight. The pilot immediately replied that the runway was in sight and acknowledged by Rendani Tower controller who then issued landing clearance with additional information that the wind was calm and the runway condition wet.
At approximately 550 feet, the PIC instructed the SIC turn on the wiper and reconfirmed to SIC that the runway was in sight.
Between altitude 500 feet to 200 feet, the EGPWS aural warnings “Sink Rate” and “Pull Up” sounded.
At 2350 UTC, the aircraft touched down and rolled on runway 35. The spoiler deployed and the pilot activated the thrust reversers. The crew did not feel significant deceleration.
The aircraft stopped at approximate 20 meters from the end of runway pavement. After the aircraft stopped, the PIC commanded “Evacuate” through the Passenger Address (PA) system. The Rendani Tower Controller saw that the aircraft was overrun and activated the crash bell then informed the Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) that there was an aircraft overrun after landing on runway 35.
All the flight crew and passengers evacuated the aircraft and transported to the terminal building safely.
