25 Feb 2020 - 737-300SF, PK-YSG (23930/1539), FF 6/4/1988 (32 Years old), operated by Trigana Air Service suffered a runway excursion and main landing gear collapse whilst taxying at WAJJ, Jayapura, Indonesia.

The aircraft was backtracking runway 33 when approximately half way down the runway it left the paved surface and suffered a partial gear failure. Photos after the event show that the left MLG had rotated through 90 degrees. At the moment it is not clear if the runway excursion caused the gear damage or the gear damage caused the runway excursion.

There were 4 crew members on board and no reported injuries. The Indonesian KNKT have opened an investigation.

Trigana Air has had 22 serious safety incidents since 1992, resulting in the loss of ten aircraft and major damage to 11 others. At the moment there is no suggestion that this incident was any fault of the airline or crew.
