23 Oct 2021 - 737-300SF, PK-JRB (23499/1242, age 35.4 years), operated by Jayawijaya Dirgantara Airlines overrun runway 30 after landing at 09:30L (00:30Z) at Jayapura, Indonesia (WAJJ) on 22 Oct 2021. There were no reported injuries and only minor damage to the aircraft.

Indonesia’s state-owned news agency Antara says the 737-300 freighter overran the runway after landing and ended up with its front landing in soft ground at Jayapura’s Dortheys Hiyo Eluay International Airport, formerly known as Sentani International Airport.

The cargo airline Jayawijaya Dirgantara is based at Jayapura’s airport, which has a 3,000m-long runway (9,843ft), and it serves primarily the Jayapura-Wamena route. Its fleet comprises of two Boeing 737-200 freighters and one 737-300 freighter. It had an incident in 2018 where one of its 737-200 freighters, PK-JRM, skidded off the runway at Wamena Airport causing one of the engines to come off. Details here.

The METAR suggests that there was a slight tailwind for Runway 30 and it was probably wet:
