(3/14/2012)

A Batavia Air Airbus 320, carrying 177 passengers and 10 crew, flying from Bali to Guangzhou, China had one of its wheels sink into a part of the runway at Sepinggan International Airport in Balikpapan (Kalimantan) on Monday, March 12, 2012.

The plane was performing a technical stop in Balikpapan for refueling and immigration formalities.

The incident closed the airport for two hours, but no injuries were reported among passengers or crew.

According to The Jakarta Globe a portion of the landing way’s total length remained closed for an extended perido as the aircraft's rear tire remained bogged down at the runway’s edge.

Special lifting bags from Jakarta had to be flown to Balikpapan to free the airplane, which was eventually towed to the apron area.
