Lion Air-cowIn another incident involving a plane of Indonesia’s discount carrier Lion Air, a jet carrying 117 people hit a cow while landing and skidded off a runway on the island of Sulawesi in eastern Indonesia in the evening of August 7.

No injuries were reported, but the incident forced the cancellation of flights, stranding hundreds of passengers traveling for the Eid holiday.

The incident happened in Gorontalo on Sulawesi island. According to the pilot, there were “three cows wandering in the middle of the runway,” and the plane hit at least one and careened off the runaway before coming to a stop. After, the pilot could smell “burning meat”.

No wonder – because the cow was crushed to death.

The airport has been closed for a clean-up before reopening in the morning of August 8.

The accident was most likely to blame on the airport authorities, officials said, and is currently under investigation.

The latest incident with Lion Air was when a plane skipped off the runway of Bali airport and crashed in to the sea in May 2013.
