At Indonesia's request, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) appointed an accredited representative in accordance with Clause 5.23 of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, to participate in the NTSC's investigation into the fatal accident in the Makassar Strait, Indonesia, involving a Boeing 737 operated by AdamAir.

The aircraft disappeared off radar and crashed into the ocean. The aircraft was destroyed and the two pilots, four flight attendants and 96 passengers on board were fatally injured.

Australia's accredited representative to the investigation worked closely with the NTSC throughout the investigation.

To protect the information supplied by the NTSC to the ATSB and investigative workload undertaken to assist the NTSC, the ATSB initiated an investigation under the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
