On Monday 27 June 2016, the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) commenced an investigation into damage sustained by ATR 72 aircraft, registered PK-WGL. Initial examination of this damage suggested similarities with that found on an Australian-registered ATR 72, registered VH-FVR, which is being investigated by the ATSB (see ATSB investigation AO-2014-032 at ATSB website). On 29 June 2016, the NTSC requested the appointment of an ATSB accredited representative to the NTSC investigation in accordance with clause 5.23 of Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation. This was a result of the ATSB’s experience with the ATR during investigation AO-2014-032 and an accredited representative was appointed to the NTSC investigation that day. To facilitate this support, the ATSB initiated an investigation under the Australian Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
The ATSB has completed their role in assisting the Indonesian NTSC.
The NTSC is responsible for, and will administer the release of the final investigation report into the occurrence involving PK-WGL. Any enquiries regarding the NTSC investigation should, in the first instance, be directed to the:
