Lion Air 737 Overruns Runway, Strikes Cow

Submitted
According to @IndoFlyer and other Indonesian news sources, a Lion Air flight overran a runway on landing at Jalaluddin Airport (GTO/WAMG) in Gorontalo City, Gorontalo, Indonesia. The 737-800 (registered PK-LKH) was operating as Flight 892 from Jakarta Airport (CGK/WIII) with a stopover in Makassar. Reports indicate that the aircraft struck several cows at some point during the landing sequence, but it is currently unknown if that contributed to the cause of the overrun. A crash photo indicates… (www.nycaviation.com) More...

Hey, did somebody swipe the ends of all the runways all of a sudden. Might be some of those Chicago mayors who have decided that airplanes don't really need some place to land!

I expect that if they hit one on the runway, that could contribute to the overrun.LOL

Holy cow, I may be mistaken about the geographic locale, but isn't the bovine divine over there. Never occurred to me that they might have right of way on an international airport. And we thought hitting a deer was hazardous. LOL

I don't think it is in Indonesia. It's mainly Muslim. You'd find it more in India or Nepal.

What do you know of India? Try to know your own country and its own social ills and evils.
Let me know your society and country and I will list out the ills and perils that plague your system.
Stop being racist.
Think global, not local.

India's predominant religion is Hinduism. The cow is consider holy in that religion. That's all I was saying. bentwing60 was thinking the cow was holy in Indonesia. It is not. Indonesia is predominantly Muslim. Cows aren't holy in Islam. Now do you understand?

Actually bentwing 60 was as usual, being sarcastic and interjecting a tad of humor into a forum that is more and more inhabited by individuals with light sabers and 45's instead of intellect, dialogue, and diplomacy. Not aiming this at Er.A.K or you Ben. Just Sayin, If you missed the "holy cow" and the "divine bovine" you might be wrapped a little tight. And Er.A.K., been on this sight almost since it's inception, haven't witnessed a race card played yet, so don't use it in reverse. If you find us offensive, as opposed to a credit to those who participate, this may not be your long term forum.

I have nothing against Indians. I think they are very intelligent and friendly people. I haven't met a single one who isn't exceptionally polite.

Oh, I get it now. That's actually pretty funny. Maybe I am wrapped a little too tight. Oh well.

He says that's where he's from and he's not polite all the time.

Yes I am not polite because I know what bias and prejudice mean. My fight is against that.
On a portal like this, as a faceless and nameless person it is all very easy to condemn a full society for the fault of a few.
Act and behave like intelligent person and I will bow down.
More over, I dare ask you and many others with similar attitude to say all this in the open, with a face and name. And see the result. Innumerable law suits of slander and defamation, criminal and civil, costing millions of dollars !
I am on this portal to get wise information related to aviation not racist garbage.
I am learning about aviation norms and laws, thanX to some wise people.
And not for the kind of **** that is noticeable here.
I wonder if there is a way to bring such comments to the notice of mangers of this portal so that they may do some cleansing !
My conduct is like 'third law of motion'. If not equal, but definitely opposite reaction !

As I said, I'm not being racist, and I have nothing against Indians. Or you for that matter. I see why you wouldn't be polite considering the fact that you thought I was badmouthing your country. I wouldn't be very nice either if somebody was prejudiced against me (or at least appeared that way).

One can control one's own actions, but not the actions of others. It is foolish to use others' behavior as a defense for our actions. Even worse, would be to let our character and decency depend upon the action of others.

A jok comes to mind.

His friend the horse replies, "You, sir, will be an ass for eternity."

You get the prize on this one. Seems the cow and friends were on the runway and maybe the fencing might be in need of some repair. And not because an airplane went through it.

Just one mayor in particular, Daley Jr. Traded Learjet noise for music (unknown modern type) noise. One is gone in a minute, the other lasts for hours. Nice trade off? eh?

Drat....off topic.

The plane apparently hit 1 of 3 cows risking around on the runway. It seems the airport needs better perimeter fencing.
