Photos are circulating around the internet this afternoon of a BAe ATP in Deraya colours, registered PK-DGB, slewed off the runway at Wamena airport (WMX) with the landing gears collapsed. It is likely that this aircraft will be written off. No other information is received other than the weather was marginal and the runway wet when the aircraft landed.

This is the second accident involving Deraya’s BAe ATP in Wamena alone. On 8 May 2013, it’s sister aircraft, PK-DGI was written off after being damaged on landing on a flight from Jayapura.
