A passenger jet skidded off the runway into the ocean while attempting to land on the Indonesian resort island of Bali on Saturday, local officials said.
"The aircraft was from Bandung, West Java, and about to land in Bali Ngurah Rai Airport but it probably failed to reach the runway and fell into the sea," Lion Air spokesman Edward Sirait said according to Reuters.
Everyone survived, the company and the government said according to Reuters. There were no early reports of injuries.
Sirait said there were 101 passengers and seven crew on board the Lion Air flight when it landed in the water at 3:45 p.m. (3:45 a.m. ET). Earlier reports said that 172 people were aboard the Boeing 737.
The plane stopped in shallow waters at least 650 feet past the end of the runway, Indonesian media reported. Local TV footage showed the plane with slightly ruptured fuselage floating in the water. People in life vests were also visible in the water.
Multiple pictures of the crippled plane circulated on Twitter.
"There was no sign at all it would fall but then suddenly it dropped into the water," passenger Tantri Widiastuti, 60, told Metro TV. "I saw holes in the floor of the plane ... we were evacuated quickly."
An investigation is under way, and the National Transportation Safety Board said it was sending a team to the site.
Reuters reported that Lion Air is a popular budget airline in Indonesia, which has a poor airline safety record.

Looks like Sully isn't the only pilot who can land in the water with no major injuries! Take that Sully!

Oh Lion Air! They seem not be be able to get a handle on things, and with all this upcoming growth.... Well, lets just say I wish them luck. Glad to see nobody got hurt.

Lion Air is one of Asia's most rapidly expanding airline markets, but is struggling to provide qualified pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers. Lion Air signed a $24 billion deal last month to buy 234 Airbus planes. Also Lion Air is currently banned from flying to Europe due to broader safety lapses in the Indonesian airline industry
First Officers at Lionair are actually paying to build flight time through a company called Eagle Jet here in the US. This is what happens when one of the pilots is a student.

Ya gotta love all the armchair accident investigators on FI......

Not a shred of investigation even started and the clown show starts from the "professionals"
