An Indonesian Air Force training plane slid off the runway on its nose at Adi Soemarmo Airport in Solo.

The incident happened at around 8.30 a.m. as a student pilot lined up to practice landings and take offs. 

The plane’s front wheel got stuck inside the machine on the way down, but the pilot managed to keep it in a controlled slide.
