Indonesian authorities are piecing together information from the wreckage of the Lion Air Boeing 737-800 that crashed in shallow water and broke into pieces just short of Runway 9 at Denpasar-Ngurah Rai Bali International Airport (WADD) on April 13. The accident occurred at 3:15 p.m. local time as the aircraft completed a non-precision approach after a 536-mile domestic flight from Badung Airport (WICC). None of the 108 people aboard was killed, although many were taken to hospital with minor injuries. While some cumulonimbus clouds were reported in the area, the (unofficial) visibility at the time of the accident was reported as good, with light and variable wind. Some conflicting weather reports claim visibility was poor in heavy rain.
