Circumstances:
The 30 years old B737 and its three crew members were performing a cargo flight from Jayapura to Wamena, carrying a load of 15,3 tons of various goods (diesel and fuel drums, rice, sugar, etc.). The final approach to Wamena was performed in poor weather conditions with a cloud base estimated between 150 and 200 feet. After a visual approach (Wamena Airport is a VFR Airfield only), the aircraft landed hard on runway 15. It appears that the left main gear collapsed while the right main gear was sheared off. The aircraft then slid on its belly and both engine for several yards before coming to rest on the right side of the runway. All three crew members were unhurt while the aircraft is damaged beyond repair.
