Narrative:
Because of political unrest, the F-28 was used to evacuate expatriates. The crew had been on continuous duty in excess of 16 hrs flying five sectors. The management was unable to deploy another crew because of the social unrest. The aircraft took off from Jakarta at 10:23 for Singapore-Seletar. The descent and approach checklists were carried out by the co-pilot, but he failed to arm the lift dumper. The runway was wet and slippery, which called for a positive touchdown. The pilot however made a smooth landing. The failure to arm the lift dumpers affected the anti-skid system operation and braking effectiveness after landing. The pilot applied alternate brakes, which is not recommended when hydroplaning is suspected. The worn main gear tyres and brake pad also degraded the braking action. The F-28 overran the runway, causing the left wing and left main gear to break off.
