Narrative:
On June 14, 2016, during a maintenance C check at Surabaya Airport, a crack was found in the horizontal stabilizer fitting.
The last flight prior to maintenance was on June 5 when the aircraft arrived at Surabaya Airport from Yogyakarta as flight IW1817. The damage must have occurred some time before the aircraft went into maintenance.

Initial examination of this damage suggested similarities with that found on an Australian-registered ATR 72, registered VH-FVR, which is being investigated by the ATSB.
