A Smart Cakrawala Aviation Cessna 208B Caravan EX suffered a left tire burst and veered off the runway while landing at Bilorai Airport (WAKC), Sugapa, Intan Jaya, Papua.

About 10:27 LT, the aircraft touched down on the threshold area of runway 09 with a ground speed of 93 knots, and indicated airspeed about 85 knots. The PIC operated the reverser, and shortly after, the PIC felt that the aircraft slightly tilted to the left and assumed that the left main landing gear tire burst. The PIC attempted to maintain the aircraft on the centerline by applying the right rudder pedal up to maximum, the control column deflected slightly to the
right, and applying the propeller lever in beta to low idle several times. The aircraft was still going to the left side of the runway and continued exiting the left side of the runway. After passing on the wet and slippery grass the aircraft stopped with the left main landing gear dropped into a ditch.
The PIC shut down the aircraft engine, then performed the evacuation procedure for passengers and the crew. No one was injured in this occurrence.
The aircraft received minor damage.
