I am pretty sure this will not be the only notice that we will be reading in a similar matter with they same company... is just amatter of time....really sad and a same for all aviation? comunity.?
nice to know you ... I'm new to this forum and here I share my horrifying experience w/ PK-LMN.
I flew on PK-LMN (on JT382, seat#7A) to MES last July and just before entering CGK's Runway 25, I felt an unpleasant sensation - "combination" between a sudden stop and skidding. I was thinking that there had been something wrong and several seconds later another JT's MD82 passed over us & touched down.
The plane then entered the runway, but aborted the take off run, then returned to T2F. The ground staff told me that "some instrument devices in the cockpit were out of order".
Until now, I absolutely have no idea - whether on that flight (JT382) I was experiencing a near-miss incident (due to the instrument device abnormalities?), or there had been a genuine problem with the break - so the cockpit crew decided to abort the take off since he thought that bigger problem would encounter us when we land at MES.
On TV, I saw the thrust reverser on both PK-LMN's engines were fully deployed - could there be any similar technical problem, so the crew did not manage to stop the plane ?
All pax were finally transfered to other MD82 (PK-LMR).
