Indonesian divers find plane parts belonging to Boeing jet that plunged into Java Sea (VIDEO) — RT World News
Sunday, January 10th 2021

Indonesian-operated Sriwijaya Air Flight 182 went missing on Saturday afternoon while traveling from Jakarta to Pontianak in West Kalimantan province. The plane reportedly experienced an hour delay before takeoff, and then disappeared from radar four minutes after becoming airborne. Authorities are still investigating what caused the tragic accident. Officials say the initial delay was due to bad weather and that a maintenance report stated that there were no issues with the aircraft before the fatal flight.

The Boeing 737-500 was carrying 62 people, including seven children and three babies. No survivors have been found.

The crash marks the worst air accident for Indonesia since the Lion Air tragedy in October 2018, when a Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed into the Java Sea shortly after taking off from Jakarta. All 189 people on board were killed. The accident, followed by another crash in Ethiopia involving the same plane model, led to the grounding of the MAX 8 for nearly two years over concerns about the aircraft’s automated flight-control system.

The jetliner lost more than 10,000 feet in altitude in one minute, four minutes after departure, according to the flight tracking service FlightRadar24.com. The plane's last known altitude was 250 feet; its highest altitude was 10,900 feet, the service reported.

A plane flying from Jakarta to Pontianak would spend most of the flight over the Java Sea.

Fishermen in the area around Thousand Islands, a chain north of Jakarta’s coast, reported hearing an explosion around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

“We heard something explode. We thought it was a bomb or a tsunami, since after that we saw the big splash from the water,” fisherman Solihin, who goes by one name, told The Associated Press by phone.

“It was raining heavily and the weather was so bad. So it is difficult to see around clearly. But we can see the splash and a big wave after the sounds. We were very shocked and directly saw the plane debris and the fuel around our boat.”

Television footage showed relatives and friends of people aboard the plane weeping, praying and hugging one another as they waited at the airports in Jakarta and Pontianak.

According to the BBC, the Boeing 737 jet is not a Max, the plane involved in deadly crashes in 2018 and 2019 that resulted in the jets being grounded worldwide. The South China Morning Post reported that the Sriwijaya Air plane was about 26 years old.

Sriwijaya Air is one of Indonesia’s discount carriers, flying to dozens of domestic and international destinations.

Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago nation with a population of more than 260 million, has been plagued by transportation accidents on land, sea and air because of overcrowding on ferries, aging infrastructure and poorly enforced safety standards.

In October 2018, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet operated by Lion Air plunged into the Java Sea just minutes after taking off from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board. It was the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since 1997, when 234 people were killed on a Garuda flight near Medan on Sumatra island. In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing 162 people.

Damn! Any airplane can (will) be a glider when the motor stops. If I remember right, a typical airplane will get 10 to 1, but a glider might be 20 to 1. Anyway, my experience with small aircraft is that 10K feet per minute is unreal. One thousand feet per minute was a really disturbing figure when I had to face air currents over a mountain. That was more than my poor airplane could do! Details for those doubters: Carson City, NV, then over Lake Tahoe to California.

Jets don't glide.

Sounds like SAM, collision with (drone?), struck by meteorite...

Jets do glide, any airplane that is intact and has functioning control surfaces will glide. One glide fast and not far but they do glide.

Q: What's the scariest noise in an airplane?
A: A loud bang coming from the engine.

Q: What's the next scariest noise?
A: No noise at all...

Been there, done that.
