On 7 March 2009, an Indonesian registered Fokker 50 aircraft, PK-RAR, on a flight from Batam - Hang Nadim airport to Matak Island, Indonesia, overran the runway during landing. The weather was reportedly poor with heavy rain.

The National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) of Indonesia was responsible for investigating this occurrence. The NTSC requested assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) in the recovery and analysis of information from the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder.  In accordance with clause 5.23 of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, the ATSB appointed an Accredited Representative to assist the NTSC.

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

The ATSB provided information to the NTSC during the course of the investigation and the ATSB's Technical Analysis Report has now been provided to the NTSC. The NTSC is responsible for releasing a final investigation report on this occurrence.
