What: Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737-300 en route from Jakarta to Yogyakarta (Indonesia)
Where: Yogyakarta
When: Dec 20th 2011, 17:35
Who: 131 passengers
Why: The plane aborted an approach to Yogyakarta due to weather and low visibility. The flight diverted to Solo, where it could not land due to weather; and diverted again to Surabaya where the flight landed to refuel. Meanwile, weather conditions at Yogyakarta improved, so the pilots returned to Yogyakarta, and proceeded to land at a higher than normal speed in the hard rain. The plane veered off the runway, with brakes rendered ineffective due to rain, and came to a stop 60 meters past the runway, with collapsed nose gear and with fuselage damage. Bits and pieces of the plane were scattered along the runway.

Passengers exited via emergency slide. Five passengers reported injury.
