DENPASAR, Indonesia (AFP) - A passenger jet operated by budget airline Lion Air - which recently sealed blockbuster orders for new planes - missed the runway at Bali airport on Saturday and landed in the sea but everybody on board survived.
The Boeing jet carrying more than 100 passengers missed the runway as it came in to land in good weather conditions at Denpasar airport on the Indonesian resort island, transportation ministry official Herry Bhakti told AFP.
Mr Bhakti initially said the plane overshot the runway, but later clarified his comments to say that it landed straight in the water.
Images of the incident site showed the plane partially submerged in the water with inflatable slides deployed from the front exits and a large crack in the fuselage towards the rear of the aircraft. Passengers in life jackets could be seen in the water.
