These dramatic pictures show the aftermath of a major runway accident at an airport in Jakarta after two planes collided during takeoff.

The images have emerged amid claims a Batik Air Boeing 737 pummeled into a Trans Nusa ATR 72 as it tried to take off from Halim Perdanakusuma airport.

The Batik Air flight ID7703 was at the end of the runway when the tip of its wing reportedly clipped the Trans Nusa aircraft that was being towed by a tractor.

The left wing of a Boeing 737, which was en route to Ujung Pandang in East Sulawesi, appears to have been completely ripped off in the smash, reports say.

All 49 passengers and seven crew members were evacuated via the plane's emergency slide after the incident on Monday.

There have been no reports of casualties and the cause of the crash is not yet known.
