Jayawijaya B732 dropped thrust reverser and veered off runway on landing

A Jayawijaya Dirgantara Boeing 737-200 freighter, registration PK-JRM performing a freight flight from Jayapura to Wamena (Indonesia) with a cargo of food including rice, cement and other cargo weighing 12,557 kg, landed on Wamena's runway 15 at 14:08L (04:08Z) but dropped the right hand thrust reverser (engine JT8D) in the touch down zone. The aircraft subsequently veered off the runway to the left, departed the left hand runway edge about 800 meters down the runway and came to a stop with all gear on soft ground about 800 meters further down the runway, about 50 meters off the edge of the runway. No injuries are being reported, the damage to the aircraft is being assessed.

Local authorities reported sufficient runway length remained available for Hercules aircraft and some small passenger aircraft caught at the outposts to operate on the runway. The aircraft is anticipated to be cleared off the runway later the day.

Whatever the cause, must have been rather interesting in the cickpit when the reverser levers were pulled and one popped off the back of the aerie :cool1:

Pulling a loaded aircraft out of a soft off-runway area will be a challenge. The stress on all three landing gear must be enormous to cope with the friction of the soft earth quick stop.
