The ATSB has completed its technical analysis report of the flight recorder data from an Avions de Transport Régional ATR-42-300F aircraft, registered PK-YRP, on behalf of the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC). The aircraft carried out a forced landing in a rice field, approximately 33 km (18 NM) north-east of Balikpapan-Sepinggan Airport, Indonesia, after reportedly losing power from both engines.  The aircraft was operating a scheduled passenger service from Berau-Kalimaru Airport to Temindung Airport, Indonesia. Two of the 51 passengers on-board sustained serious injuries.

The NTSC is 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 aircraft's flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder.

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's technical analysis report has now been provided to the NTSC, who is responsible for releasing a final investigation report on this occurrence.
