The Lion Air craft is believed to have slid off the runway and into water outside Ngurah Rai Airport, near Denpasar late this afternoon.

A large crack was clearly visible on the plane as it sat swamped by water about 6pm (AEST).

It was not immediately known if any Australians were on board or if the broken fuselage was caused mid-air or on impact.

Early reports from Indonesia indicated passengers and crew had survived the crash and been relocated to a nearby hospital.

The plane was travelling from London to Denpasar when it experienced trouble.

Initial reports suggested the plane may have overshot the runway.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it was not aware of any Australians on board.

Passengers said on Facebook they were stranded at the airport.

"A landing plane has overshot the runway and ended up in the water," one tourist, from Perth, said.

"As a result, the whole airport is closed and we're stranded."

ABC News reported all 172 onboard ok.

The a/c overran the runway and into the water.

The images show that there was no fire with the fuselage broken behind the wing.

Lucky escape, if first reports (no losses) are true.

It's apparent Lion Air are or were looking into Australian operations. Looks like they won't be flying here for a while, that's if they aren't banned from Australian airspace like they are in Europe.

Interesting how everyone becomes an instant expert :)
Check out this report -

It was an undershoot not an over-run and it's possible windshear had a part to play.
And remember, DSP/WADD is also very light on in terms of 21st century navaids.
