Accidents & Serious Incidents at or in vicinity of WATT

  • E190, Kupang Indonesia, 2015 (On 21 December 2015, an Embraer 195 crew continued a significantly unstable approach which included prolonged repetition of 'High Speed' and a series of EGPWS Alerts which were both ignored and which culminated in a high speed late touchdown which ended in a 200 metre overrun. The Investigation attributed the event to poor flight management and noted the systemic lack of any effective oversight of pilot operating standards compounded in the investigated event by the effects of a steep flight deck authority gradient and the failure to detect anomalies in the normal operating behaviour of both the pilots involved.)
  • MA60, Kupang Indonesia, 2013 (On 10 June 2013, a Merpati Nusantara Xian MA60 flown by a First Officer undergoing supervised line training made an unstable visual approach at destination which culminated in a sudden further increase in the rate of descent. The aircraft initially touched down on the runway with a vertical acceleration of 6g and then, after a bounce of -3g, stopped in 200 metres. The impact resulted in the wing box separating from the fuselage. The Investigation found that the Power Levers had been unintentionally moved into the ground range shortly before touchdown without either pilot being aware.)
