Update Missing Jet-Pilots Disabled Vital Computer System+Distressing VIDEOs

Revealed: Pilot of Missing AirAsia Jet Carrying 162 People was Denied Request to Climb in Stormy Weather – as Search Zeroes in on Two Oil Patches Found Floating on Sea

  • Search and rescue chief says plane is most likely 'at the bottom of the sea'
  • Objects spotted in search zone later ruled out by Indonesia's vice-president
  • Operation centres on two oily patches around 1,000km from last contact
  • Experts claim jet may have stalled because it was flying '160km/h too slow'
  • Request made by pilot to climb due to storms six minutes before vanishing
  • Air traffic control couldn't grant request because another plane was in way
  • AirAsia boasted it would 'never lose a plane' days after MH370 vanished
Daily Mail UK, 29 December 2014


A pilot on board the missing AirAsia plane was denied a request to increase altitude to avoid storm clouds minutes before the jet disappeared, it emerged today.


In the last communication with air traffic control six minutes before it vanished off radar, one of the pilots asked permission to turn left and climb from 32,000ft to 38,000ft due to the adverse weather.
However, the request could not immediately be granted because another plane was in the airspace at 34,000ft, said Bambang Tjahjono, director of the state-owned company in charge of air-traffic control.
By the time clearance could be given, Flight 8501 had disappeared, he added.
Details of the jet's last moments emerged as planes hunting for the Airbus A320 revealed they had spotted objects and oil patches in the sea inside the search zone.
The announcements will bring further anguish to relatives of the 162 passengers and crew who are desperately clinging to hope they may find survivors despite one official saying the jet was most likely 'at the bottom of the sea'.

Mystery: The flight went missing from radar at 6.18am local time - six minutes after last communication with air traffic control - while travelling from Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board. Search planes spotted objects and two oily patches in the search area on Monday afternoon





Aviation Safety Network posted this radar graphic on Twitter showing all the flights in the air at the time QZ8501 went missing. A request by one of the pilots to increase altitude due to stormy weather conditions was denied because another jet was in the airspace at the time, it emerged today


Jakarta's Air Force base commander Rear Marshal Dwi Putranto said an Australian Orion aircraft had detected suspicious objects around 1,120km from the point of last contact, but these were later ruled out by Indonesia's vice-president Jusuf Kalla.

'It has been checked and no sufficient evidence was found to confirm what was reported,' Jusuf Kalla told a press conference at Surabaya airport where the missing plane took off.

The search is instead focusing on two oily patches spotted by an Indonesian helicopter close to where a group of Indonesian fishermen claimed to have heard a crash near the island of Pulau Nangka
Rear Marshal Dwi Putranto said the objects were spotted near Nangka island, about 160 kilometres south-west of Pangkalan Bun, near central Kalimantan.
But he added: 'We cannot be sure whether it is part of the missing AirAsia plane. We are now moving in that direction, which is in cloudy conditions.'
The search was later suspended for a second night.

AIRASIA BOASTED IT WOULD 'NEVER LOSE A PLANE' DAYS AFTER MH370 VANISHED

AirAsia once boasted that its well-trained pilots would never lose a plane days after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared.
The budget carrier was forced into a humiliating apology and withdrew the offending article after it was published in its in-flight magazine.
The article sparked anger on social media after an AirAsia passenger posted a photograph of the text on Twitter last April.
The last paragraph read: 'Pilot training in AirAsia is continuous and very thorough. Rest assured that your captain is well prepared to ensure your plane will never get lost.'
AirAsia Executive Chairman Kamarudin Meranun expressed 'deep regret and remorse,' saying the latest issue of 'travel 3Sixty' magazine was printed before the Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 239 people disappeared ON March 8 while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Mr Kamarudin said the article was a monthly aviation column prepared well in advance by a retired pilot, who had worked for both AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines.
'This is a truly difficult time for the nation and words cannot describe how I personally feel of this incident,' Mr Kamarudin said in a statement.


Waters in the search area, which is roughly the size of California, are not particularly deep at between 130ft and 160ft.
The flight went missing at 6.17am local time on Sunday while travelling from Indonesia to Singapore as speculation on the cause of the disappearance centred on weather, speed and an older radar system.
Aviation experts have speculated that the flight may have encountered 'black storm cells' which caused a build-up of ice on airspeed senors known as pitot tubes.
A similar scenario was blamed for the Air France disaster when Flight AF447 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009 while en route from Rio De Janeiro to Paris.
Aviation expert Geoffrey Thomas spoke to several check captains and believes the pilot of QZ8501 encountered difficult weather conditions but flew too slow in his efforts to avoid it.

'The QZ8501 was flying too slow, about 100 knots which is about 160 km/h too slow. At that altitude that's exceedingly dangerous,' Mr Thomas said.
'Pilots believe that the crew, in trying to avoid the thunderstorm by climbing, somehow have found themselves flying too slow and thus induced an aerodynamic stall similar to the circumstances of the loss of Air France AF447 to crash in 2009.'
'I have a radar plot which shows him at 36,000 feet and climbing at a speed of 353 knots, which is approximately 100 knots too slow ... if the radar return is correct, he appears to be going too slow for the altitude he is flying at,' Mr Thomas said.

Mr Thomas said this should not happen in an A320, so it appears as though it was related to extreme weather conditions.

'He got caught in a massive updraft or something like that. Something's gone terribly wrong,' he said.
'Essentially the plane is flying too slow to the altitude and the thin air, and the wings won't support it at that speed and you get a stall, an aerodynamic stall.'

The A320, while sophisticated, is not equipped with the latest radar, Mr Thomas said.
The radar used by the A320 can sometimes have problems in thunderstorms and the pilot may have been deceived by the severity of these particular ones.





There are scenes of anguish at the Indonesian airport as family and friends wait anxiously

The latest technology radars, which were pioneered by Qantas in 2002, can give a more complete and accurate reading of a thunderstorm, but they will not be certified for the A320 until next year.

'If you don't have what's called a multi-skilled radar you have to tilt the radar yourself manually, you have to look down to the base of the thunderstorm to see what the intensity of the moisture and the rain is, then you make a judgment of how bad it is. It's manual, so it's possible to make a mistake, it has happened,' Mr Thomas explained.

AirAsia confirmed there were 155 passengers on board - including 138 adults, 16 children and one infant - and also stated there were two pilots, four flight attendants and one engineer on board.
Nationalities of passengers and crew on board are one Singaporean, one Malaysian, one British, one French, three South Koreans and 155 Indonesians.
Earlier Monday, Indonesia search and rescue chief Henry Bambang Soelistyo said it seemed certain that the plane had crashed.
'Based on the co-ordinates that we know, the evaluation would be that any estimated crash position is in the sea, and that the hypothesis is the plane is at the bottom of the sea,' he said.

The last communication from the ****pit to air traffic control was a request by one of the pilots to increase altitude from 32,000 feet to 38,000 feet because of the rough weather.

Air traffic control was not able to immediately grant the request because another plane was in airspace at 34,000 feet, said Bambang Tjahjono, director of the state-owned company in charge of air-traffic control.
By the time clearance could be given, Flight 8501 had disappeared, Tjahjono said.
The twin-engine, single-aisle plane, which never sent a distress signal, was last seen on radar four minutes after the last communication from the ****pit.

Search efforts for the plane's wreckage resumed on Monday and have been focused around the area of the Java Sea near Belitung.
Boats have been sent from Tanjung Pandan, the largest town on Belitung Island, but are not expected to reach the area until midnight local time, due to inclement weather and sea conditions

'PAPA, PLEASE COME HOME': FAMILY'S TORMENT OVER MISSING AIRASIA PILOT WHO FLEW F-16 JETS BEFORE BECOMING COMMERCIAL CAPTAIN

The daughter of the missing AirAsia captain today made an emotional plea for her father to come home, telling him: 'I still need you'.
Captain Iriyanto disappeared in airspace thick with storm clouds between Indonesia and Singapore while piloting Flight 8501 with 162 people on board yesterday.
His picture was posted on social media by his 22-year-old daughter Angela Ranastianis with the heartbreaking message: 'Papa, please come home, I still need you. Bring back my papa.'
Cpt Iriyanto's father said the last time he saw his son was at the funeral of his other son who died of diabetes last week.





'Papa, come home, I still need you': Angela Ranastianis, the daughter of missing AirAsia pilot Iriyanto, has made an emotional appeal for her father to return safely after posting this picture with him online


Suwarto, who has only one name, told the BBC he hoped he would see his son again, but accepted it would be God's will if he didn't.
At Iryanto's house in the East Java town of Sidoarjo, neighbours, relatives and friends gathered to pray and recite the Quran to support the distraught family.
Their desperate cries were so loud, they could sometimes be heard outside where three LCD televisions had been set up to monitor search developments.

'He is a good man. That's why people here appointed him as our neighbourhood chief for the last two years,' said Bagianto Djoyonegoro, a friend and neighbour, adding that despite being busy with his job, Iryanto was always very active in the community and attentive to the needs of the people around him.

Cpt Iriyanto's nephew told Indonesian news outlet Detik.com his uncle, who is married with two young children, was 'a very caring person'.
He said:

'He is always helping people because he is a very caring person. If there is a sick relative who needed help and even money, my uncle would be there.
'If there are money problems in the family, he would surely help.'

Many recalled him as an experienced Air Force pilot who flew F-16 fighter jets before becoming a commercial airline pilot.
AirAsia said the captain had more than 20,000 flying hours, of which 6,100 were with AirAisa on the Airbus 320.

AIR INDUSTRY'S DEADLIEST YEAR IN A DECADE AS TOLL RISES TO 1,212

The past 12 months have been the worst for aviation fatalities so far this decade - with the total of number of people killed if airline crashes reaching 1,050 even before the Air Asia plane vanished.
Two incidents involving Malaysia Airlines planes - one over eastern Ukraine and the other in the Indian Ocean - led to the deaths of 537 people, while an Air Algerie crash in Mali killed 116 and TransAsia Airways crash in Taiwan killed a further 49 people.
The remaining 456 fatalities were largely in incidents involving small commercial planes or private aircraft operating on behalf of companies, governments or organisations.
Despite 2014 having the highest number of fatalities so far this decade, the total number of crashes was in fact the lowest since the first commercial jet airliner took off in 1949 - totalling just 111 across the whole world over the past 12 months.
The all-time deadliest year for aviation was 1972 when a staggering 2,429 people were killed in plane crashes.
However this year's total death count of 1,212, including those presumed dead on board the missing Air Asia flight, marks a significant rise on the very low 265 fatalities in 2013 - which led to it being named the safest year in aviation since the end of the Second World War.




Meanwhile, the billionaire CEO of AirAsia described missing flight QZ8501 as his 'worst nightmare' as the massive air and sea search for the plane resumed at first light on Monday.
Tony Fernandes spoke of his horror over the situation after the plane lost contact with air traffic control with 155 passengers and seven crew members on board at about 6.17am local time, a short time after the pilot asked to deviate from the flight path due to 'bad weather'.
Upon arriving in Indonesia, Mr Fernandez gave a press conference to family and friends of those on board the plane and said the focus should be on the search and the families.

'We have no idea at the moment what went wrong,' Mr Fernandes, who founded the regional low-cost carrier in 2001 when it was in debt and worth just 50 cent, said on Sunday.
'Let's not speculate at the moment.'

The 50-year-old built AirAsia from a small, heavily indebted company to a huge low-cost airline after buying it for just 50 cent in 2001. He later expanded into long-hail flights with the AirAsia X brand.

Mr Fernandes later posted a tweet on his Twitter account on Monday afternoon saying: 'Keeping positive and staying strong. My heart bleeds for all the relatives of the crew and passengers. Nothing is more important to us.'

A massive search and rescue operation was launched on Sunday but was suspended for the night due to unworkable conditions.
The fishing boats and official vessels that were sent out by Indonesia's national search and rescue authority, along with helicopters and Hercules aircraft from Singapore, set out again at sunrise on Monday morning.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott offered the nation's help to assist in the search on Sunday.
Despite comparisons of QZ8501 to this year's earlier Malaysia Airlines tragedies, Mr Abbott said the AirAsia flight's disappearance was a tragedy but ....

'This is not a mystery like the MH370 disappearance and it's not an atrocity like the MH17 shooting down'.


MH370 disappeared in March while on its way from Malaysia to China when it lost contact. The aircraft has not been seen since.
Five months later, MH17 was flying over Ukrainian airspace when it was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. All 298 people on board the flight died, including 38 Australians.

Mr Abbott was speaking on Macquarie Radio on Monday, adding:

'It's an aircraft that was flying a regular route on a regular schedule, it struck what appears to have been horrific weather and it's downed'.

But the Australian Defence Force deployed a RAAF AP-3C Orion Maritime Patrol Aircraft to assist on Monday,' the Sydney Herald reported.
Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin said the aircraft had 'a well-proven capability in search and rescue and carries maritime search radar coupled with infra-red and electro-optical sensors'.

The scenes of anguish at Singapore's Changi Airport were reminiscent of those in March 2014, when Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 lost contact with air traffic control several hundred miles north of Singapore. No trace of the aircraft has been found.

The pilot of the AirAsia plane has been named as Captain Iriyanto, while the co-pilot is believed to be Frenchman Remi Emmanual Plesel. A picture of the pilot has been posted on social media by his daughter Angela Ranastianis.

Cpt Iriyanto's nephew told Indonesian news outlet Dekit his uncle, who is married with two young children, was 'a very caring person'.

'He is always helping people because he is a very caring person. If there is a sick relative who needed help and even money, my uncle would be there,' the relative said.
'If there are money problems in the family, he would surely help.'

A family including a groom-to-be and his parents and brother were reportedly among those onboard. Fox reported Alain Oktavianus Siaun and his family were intending to enjoy one last holiday together before he married.

'My heart knew by then that my fiancé was on that flight.'
But Ms Sidharta said she would not give up.
'We have to stay positive and hope that they [loved ones] could be found soon,' she said.

The British passenger aboard the missing AirAsia flight was travelling with his two-year-old Singaporean daughter after other family members got an earlier flight from Indonesia, it is believed.
It is thought the British father, named as Chi Man Choi, and his daughter Zoe, were returning to Singapore and planned to reunite with the young girl's Singaporean mother, who travelled on an earlier flight from Surabaya, in Indonesia, with Zoe's older brother.

AirAsia confirmed there were 155 passengers on board - including 138 adults, 16 children and one infant - and also stated there were two pilots


Mr Choi, who is believed to be from Hull in Yorkshire originally and who graduated from the University of Essex, was the managing director at an energy company in Indonesia.
He purchased his plane ticket and that of his daughter's on Boxing Day - according to the passenger manifest - and they were seated in the first row, in seats 1B and 1C.
The Foreign Office was unable to formally confirm the British national's identity but confirmed a Briton was on board and next of kin had been informed.
A spokesman said: 'We are aware of an incident regarding AirAsia flight QZ8501.
'Our thoughts are with the passengers' families as they await further news.
'We have been informed by the local authorities that one British national was on board.
'Their next of kin has been informed, and we stand ready to provide consular assistance.'

A spokesman for the British Embassy in Jakarta said it was working with local authorities to establish further details.
It is believed the three South Koreans on the plane were Park Seong-beom, 37, his wife Lee Kyung-hwa, 36, and their 12-month daughter Park Yuna.
According to officials at Yeosu First Presbyterian Church, the couple had been sent to Indonesia as Christian missionaries and were travelling to Singapore to renew their visas.

According to Indonesia's Director of Air Transport, Djoko Murjatmodjo, contact with the aircraft was lost between Tanjung Pandan and Pontianak, a trading port city in west Kalimantan about 100 nautical miles south east of Tanjung Pandan.
AirAsia Indonesia announced the flight's disappearance via a statement on Facebook which said:

'[It] regrets to confirm that flight QZ8501 from Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control at 07.24hrs this morning'.
'At the present time, we unfortunately have no further information regarding the status of the passengers and crew members on board, but we will keep all parties informed as more information becomes available,' it said.

'At this time, search and rescue operations are in progress and AirAsia is cooperating fully and assisting the rescue service.'

It later issued a statement confirming it had set up emergency briefing rooms for family members of the missing passengers at both airports.

  • Impeccable safety record – no incidents since 2001
  • It is a low-cost airline that flies between 22 countries
  • Also travels to Australia, Japan and India
  • AirAsia serves longer haul routes including Bali to Perth and Melbourne
An A320 pilot writing on the aviation forum Aviation.net said the weather as the Air Asia flight headed north east was 'nasty' but he believed that it would not be enough to cause a major structural failure.

'While the weather on the route looks rather nasty, I have always found that the A320 is a really sold aircraft in turbulence,' the pilot, writing from Canada, said
'I've flown it through bad winter storms, tropical thunderstorms and all sorts of combined weather and I've never felt that the aircraft was being held together on a hope and a prayer.'

Other crew members lost along with the pilot and co-pilot were four flight attendants are listed as Wanti Setiawati, Khairunisa Haidar Fauzi, Oscar Desano and Wismoyo Ari Prambudi as well as technician Saiful Rakhmad.
On Christmas Eve, Desano wrote on Twitter:

'Merry Christmas to all my beautiful friends who celebrate it.'

He also posted a picture of himself wearing his Air Asia identification tag.
AirAsia flies mostly in the South East Asian area, its reach being as far as Sydney and the Queensland Gold Coast.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has issued a statement to Fairfax Media, saying it was checking with the Australian Embassy in Jakarta and the Australian High Commissioner in Singapore to see if any of the passengers were holding an Australian passport.

'Those concerned about the welfare of their Australian family and friends who were known to be travelling on this flight should contact the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on 1300 555 135 (or +61 2 6261 3305 if calling from overseas),' the statement read.

The United States has also offered to help with the search.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said: 'Our hearts and hopes are with the passengers and families of AirAsia QZ8501.'

AirAsia has established an Emergency Call Centre available for family or friends of those who may have been on board the aircraft. The number for the hotline is XXXXXXXXXXXXX

(Reuters) - Indonesian rescuers searching for an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people pulled bodies and wreckage from the sea off the coast of Borneo on Tuesday, prompting relatives of those on board watching TV footage to break down in tears.


Indonesia AirAsia's Flight QZ8501, an Airbus A320-200, lost contact with air traffic control early on Sunday during bad weather on a flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore.
The navy said 40 bodies had been recovered. The plane has yet to be found.

"My heart is filled with sadness for all the families involved in QZ8501," airline boss Tony Fernandes tweeted. "On behalf of AirAsia, my condolences to all. Words cannot express how sorry I am."

The airline said in a statement that it was inviting family members to Surabaya, "where a dedicated team of care providers will be assigned to each family to ensure that all of their needs are met".
Pictures of floating bodies were broadcast on television and relatives of the missing already gathered at a crisis center in Surabaya wept with heads in their hands. Several people collapsed in grief and were helped away.

"You have to be strong," the mayor of Surabaya, Tri Rismaharini, said as she comforted relatives. "They are not ours, they belong to God."
A navy spokesman said a plane door, oxygen tanks and one body had been recovered and taken away by helicopter for tests.
"The challenge is waves up to three meters high," Fransiskus Bambang Soelistyo, head of the Search and Rescue Agency, told reporters, adding that the search operation would go on all night. He declined to answer questions on whether any survivors had been found.

About 30 ships and 21 aircraft from Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and the United States have been involved in the search.

The plane, which did not issue a distress signal, disappeared after its pilot failed to get permission to fly higher to avoid bad weather because of heavy air traffic, officials said.
It was traveling at 32,000 feet (9,753 meters) and had asked to fly at 38,000 feet, officials said earlier.
Pilots and aviation experts said thunderstorms, and requests to gain altitude to avoid them, were not unusual in that area.

The Indonesian pilot was experienced and the plane last underwent maintenance in mid-November, the airline said.
The aircraft had accumulated about 23,000 flight hours in some 13,600 flights, according to Airbus.

UPDATE:

AirAsia Crash Victims Found: Six Bodies from Doomed Jet are Recovered from the Java Sea

  • Bodies of crash victims spotted floating in sea off coast of Borneo Island
  • At least six bodies recovered from the water by Indonesian naval vessel
  • Officials have now confirmed wreckage is from AirAsia flight 8501
  • Navy spokesman earlier claimed 40 bodies were retrieved from Java Sea
  • But this figure has now been corrected to six by search and rescue teams
Daily Mail UK, 30 December 2014


Rescue workers searching for the doomed AirAsia flight 8501 have recovered six bodies from the Java Sea, Indonesian search and rescue teams have confirmed.
Bodies were discovered alongside luggage, a plane door and an emergency slide in the water 100 miles off the coast of Borneo Island earlier today, following three days of searching.
Officials have confirmed that the bodies and debris found in the Java Sea off Indonesia are from flight 8501, and a naval spokesman said the rescuers remain 'very busy' retrieving the victims.
Despite an earlier claim by a navy spokesman that 40 bodies had been recovered, the figure was later corrected by the search agency Basarnas, which said that six bodies had been found so far.
Before darkness fell in the area, search teams identified a shadow that they believe to be the plane's fuselage beneath the water, which is relatively shallow at just 160 feet at its deepest point. Many of the remaining victims are thought likely to still be on board the aircraft
The Airbus A320-200 was 42 minutes into its flight from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore on Sunday when it vanished with 162 people on board.

Tragic: The flight went missing from radar at 6.18am local time - six minutes after last communication with air traffic control - while travelling from Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board. Search and rescue workers spotted a number of bodies and debris floating in the water this morning




This morning several pieces of red, white and black debris were spotted in the Java Sea near Borneo island.
The bodies were found in the Java Sea about six miles from Flight 8501's last communications with air traffic control.
Search leader Bambang Soelistyo said:

'As the search and rescue coordinator, I can 95 per cent confirm [this is] debris and objects from the plane. The five per cent is simply because I haven't seen personally seen them.'

Indonesian President Joko Widodo also confirmed plans to visit both the crisis center in Surabaya and the suspected crash location near Pangkalan Bun.

The recovery of the six bodies came as devastated relatives of AirAsia crash victims collapsed in grief and were taken to hospital after an Indonesian television station showed disturbing uncensored footage of the corpses floating in the sea.
Images shown on a news channel showed at least one body floating in the water, causing the victims' relatives - who were watching live reports at crisis-centre at Juanda International Airport in Surabaya - to burst into tears, with some fainting and requiring hospital treatment.
The decision to broadcast the uncensored images on live television has led to severe criticism of news channel TV One.

Grieving friends and relatives of passengers sat sobbing quietly into tissues an gazed into thin air as they took in the news and realized that the 'bodies could be their relatives.
Police officers had to be drafted in to stop press from entering the building, according to Time Magazine.

The bodies were seen from a helicopter and were taken to an Indonesian navy ship.
Navy spokesman Manahan Simorangkir said several victims were found while Air Force spokesman Hadi Tjahjanto said at least one body had been found.

REVEALED: AirAsia Flight QZ8501 Did Not Have a Permit to be Flying Deadly Route on the Day it Plunged into the Sea as Investigators Announce They Have Found 'Four big objects' in Search For Lost Jet

  • The plane had been flying on an unauthorised schedule when it crashed
  • The airliner has now been suspended from flying the route from the city of Surabaya to Singapore
  • Search team came across 'two big objects' in the Java Sea off the island of Borneo late on Friday night
  • The plane was reportedly flying on an unauthorised schedule when it crashed on Sunday
  • This comes as 21 bodies were pulled from Java Sea - the largest number of search so far
  • New discoveries bring total found to 30 as another 132 remain missing
  • Five of those found today were still strapped into their seats, officials say
  • Crews have found tail end of plane, but still no sign of black box recorder
Daily Mail Australia, 3 January 2015


AirAsia didn’t have permission to fly from Surabaya to Singapore on the Sunday morning that flight QZ8501 crashed into the Java Sea.
Indonesia's transport ministry said the plane had been flying on an 'unauthorised schedule' when it crashed, and the airliner has now been suspended from flying the route from the city of Surabaya to Singapore.



Indonesian authorities also said that recovery teams have found two big parts of AirAsia Flight 8501, which crashed into the sea last weekend with 162 people on board.

Transport ministry spokesman J.A. Barata said the airline was only permitted to fly the route on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from late 2014 to early 2015.

'So AirAsia has committed a violation of the route that has been given to them,' Mr. Barata said. He said the company’s flights from Surabaya to Singapore had consequently been postponed.


Tommy Soetomo, the head of state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I, said AirAsia had been allocated a slot to fly on Sundays. But Mr. Barata said that information was outdated and that AirAsia should have returned the slot to the government.
Before October, AirAsia had permission to fly daily to Singapore from Surabaya, Indonesia’s second largest city, he said. He didn’t say why the number of flights was cut.

The two big parts of the plane were found in the Java Sea off the island of Borneo late on Friday night, raising hopes that the remaining bodies and the black boxes, crucial to determining the cause of the crash, will soon be located.

'With the discovery of an oil spill and two big parts of the aircraft, I can assure you these are the parts of the AirAsia plane we have been looking for,' search and rescue agency chief Bambang Soelistyo told reporters.
He said the larger of the objects were around 10 metres by five metres (32 feet by 16 feet).
'As I speak we are lowering an ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle) underwater to get an actual picture of the objects detected on the sea floor. All are at the depth of 30 metres,' Mr Soelistyo said.

Earlier on Friday, recovery teams pulled 21 bodies from the Java Sea.

The total is the largest of the search so far, more than tripling the number of bodies recovered from nine to 30, as dive teams say some were found still strapped into their seats.


While the black box has eluded search boats so far, this afternoon crews announced they have found the tail of the plane sitting 100ft below the ocean's surface using sonar devices.
It is still not known what caused the Airbus A320-200 to plunge into the ocean last Sunday and the plane's black box recorder, which will contain vital information, has yet to be located.

Dive teams have been left frustrated as dire weather has prevented them from searching several large objects identified on the sea bed which may be parts of the plane's fuselage.
Search vessels, including a minesweeping craft and a private radar boat, have also been unable to detect 'pings' - tiny electrical signals - which are usually emitted by the box to signal its position.

In emotional scenes, three more victims were identified and handed to their families for burial at Surabaya hospital. They included Grayson Herbert Linaksita, an 11-year-old boy, and 22-year-old Khairunisa Binti Haidar Fauzi, an air hostess with AirAsia.

The data recorder contains crucial information like engine temperature and vertical and horizontal speed. The voice recorder saves discussion between pilots and other sounds from the ****pit.
Toos Saniotoso, an Indonesian air safety investigator, said investigators 'are looking at every aspect' as they try to determine why the plane crashed.

He added: 'From the operational side, the human factor, the technical side, the ATC (air traffic control) - everything is valuable to us.'

Drizzle and light clouds covered the area this morning, and rain, strong winds and high waves up to 13ft were forecast until Sunday. Strong sea currents have also kept debris moving.
The plane, carrying 162 passengers and crew, went down on Sunday around 40 minutes into a flight from Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city, to Singapore.
Minutes before disappearing from radar, the pilot told air traffic control he was approaching a storm, but was denied permission to climb above it because of heavy air traffic.
While the actual cause is unknown, one expert has theorised that the pilot managed to land the plane successfully on the ocean, before it was overwhelmed by waves and sank.

Dudi Sudibyo, senior editor of aviation magazine Angkasa, said that emergency locator transmitters fitted to the plane were primed to go off in the event of a strong impact, but never triggered.
He says that if the captain, who was an experience pilot, managed to land safely before the craft sank, this could explain why no signal was transmitted.

However, other experts, examining radar data leaked from the investigation, disagreed.
Instead they said the plane was batted from the skies by immensely powerful winds that caused it to rise up at the same rate as a fighter jet, before dropping almost vertically into the ocean.
Their conclusion is that the Airbus 320-200 was in the grip of weather so freakishly extreme that there was nothing the pilots could have done to save the jet and all 162 people on board.

The plane behaved in ways ‘bordering on the edge of logic,’ Indonesian aviation analyst Gerry Soejatman said after examining figures leaked from the official air crash investigation team.

But on Friday Mr Soejatman said the jet climbed at a speed that would have been impossible for the pilot to have achieved - and then plunged straight down ‘like a piece of metal being thrown down.'
‘It’s really hard to comprehend…the way it goes down is bordering on the edge of logic.’

Australian aviation expert, Peter Marosszeky, from the University of NSW, told the Sydney Morning Herald that, in contrast, he was baffled by the extremely low speed of the descent - as low as 61 knots - which would suggest the plane was heading almost straight down, explaining why it has been found in water just 10km from its last point of radar contact.

Experts examining flight data leaked from the AirAsia crash investigation said the plane behaved in ways 'bordering on the edge of logic' after rising thousands of feet into the air before falling almost vertically


Both experts are in agreement that the jet went down almost vertically - and also concluded that a freak weather pattern that placed the aircraft under extraordinary forces was to blame for its plight.

Mr Soejatman meanwhile remains convinced that the reason for the crash is possibly because the aircraft was caught in a severe updraft, followed by an equally severe ground draft.
He said that leaked figures showed the plane climbed at a virtually unprecedented rate of 6000ft to 9000ft per minute and ‘you can’t do that at altitude in an Airbus 320 with pilot action.’

The most that could normally be expected, he said, would be 1000ft to 1500ft on a sustained basis, gaining 3000ft in a burst.
But then the aircraft fell at an even more incredible rate of 11,000ft a minute, with extraordinary bursts of up to 24,000ft a minute - figures higher than the Air France A330 Airbus that crashed into the Atlantic in 2009, killing 228 passengers after attaining baffling ascent and descent rates.

Mr Marosszeky agreed that a climb rate of at least 6000ft a minute would indicate a ‘severe weather event,’ because that rate of climb was a ‘domain for jet fighters.’

In a fascinating, yet worrying, comment earlier in the week, AirAsia chief executive Tony Fernandes suggested that climate change was making weather worse and flying riskier, particularly in the tropics.
Meanwhile Mr Fernandes promised that he would fly with the family of flight QZ8501 and the body of stewardess Ms Khairunnisa to her home town in Palembang, Indonesia, once her body has been positively identified.
The stewardess was still in her red AirAsia uniform when she was recovered.

In a Tweet, Mr Fernandes said that ‘if our beautiful and wonderful crew (member) is identified, we will go from Surabaya to Palembang with her parents. Heartbreaking soul (destroyed).’

'It Went Down – BOOM': Doomed AirAsia Jet EXPLODED When it Slammed into the Java Sea… as Divers Locate Crucial Second Black Box Which will Reveal Final Words of Pilots Before Crash

  • Initial analysis reveals that the aircraft shattered because the cabin had not depressurised when it hit the water
  • Divers have found the second black box from the AirAsia plane
  • However, they have not yet been able to free it from debris on the sea bed
  • Earlier on Monday Indonesian divers retrieved the first black box
  • Searchers began zeroing in after three Indonesian ships picked up intense pings from the area
Daily Mail Australia, 12 January 2015


Salvage experts believe that the AirAsia jet which crashed into the sea with 162 people on board exploded on impact.


Suryadi Supriyadi, a director with the Indonesian national search and rescue agency, suggested initial analysis of the wreckage showed that the aircraft shattered because the cabin had not depressurised when it slammed into the water, SKY reported.
Mr Supriyadi said:

'The cabin was pressurised and before the pressure of the cabin could be adjusted, it went down - boom. That explosion was heard in the area.'

A team of navy divers earlier on Monday retrieved the flight data recorder from the wreckage. Divers have also found the second black box, but they have not yet been able to free it from debris on the floor of the Java Sea.

Associated Press reported that Mr Supriyadi confirmed the ****pit voice recorder was located on Monday just hours after officials announced that the other black box - the data flight recorder - had been brought to the surface.
He said the second black box was stuck under heavy wreckage, and divers are now working to lift it.
The flight recorder monitors data such as airspeed and the aircraft's heading, while the ****pit voice recorder stores radio transmissions and sounds from within the ****pit.

Sky's Beijing Correspondent Mark Stone said:

'Experts will be looking at data which recorded the performance of the engines or other instrument in the ****pit. All of that will be taken to Jakarta and analysed in great detail.
'The conversations the crew had with ground control units in Singapore and Indonesia are already known, but they do not know what conversations took place on the flight deck.
'They know there was no Mayday issued and the ****pit recorder, when it is found, could reveal why.'

Searchers began zeroing in on the sites a day earlier after three Indonesian ships picked up intense pings from the area. The flight data recorder was brought to the surface by four divers early on Monday morning.
The ****pit voice and flight data recorders are vital to understanding what brought Flight 8501 down on December 28, killing all 162 people on board.

None of the 162 people on the aircraft survived. So far 48 bodies have been recovered from the site, including at least two still strapped into their seats.
Searchers have been hearing pings, believed to be from the aircraft's two black boxes near where the tail of the Airbus A320-200 aircraft was raised.
Mr Supriyadi said earlier on Sunday a sonar scan had revealed an object measuring 10 metres by four metres by 2.5 metres on the sea floor.

AirAsia Pilots 'Disabled Vital Computer Control System' Before Plane Crashed into the Java Sea

  • Pilots were responding to alerts from the flight augmentation computers
  • They cut power to the system by pulling a circuit breaker in the ****pit
  • Aircraft reportedly climbed more than 5,000 feet in less than 30 seconds
  • Pilots are thought to have tried to gain control of the plane manually
  • Second-in-command Remi Plesel was flying pane before it crashed into sea
  • Captain Iriyanto, an experienced former military jet pilot, was 'monitoring'
  • He's thought to have taken control from Plesel when plane began to ascend
  • Co-pilot had 2,275 flying hours when Flight QZ8501 crashed in December
  • Search for victims could end within days if no more bodies were found
Daily Mail UK, 30 January 2015


AirAsia flight 8501 crashed killing all 162 people on board after pilots disabled a critical computer system that keeps planes under control while trying to escape bad weather, it has been claimed.

The pilots cut power to the vital control system by pulling a circuit breaker in the ****pit while trying to respond to incessant alerts from the flight augmentation computers, two people with insight into the crash investigation said
The flight augmentation computers control the aircraft’s rudder and prevent it from flying too slow.

The Airbus A320 vanished from radar screens in bad weather on December 28 with initial reports suggesting it climbed so fast into a storm – into altitude where it was not permitted to fly - that it lost lift and then crashed into the Java Sea.
Ertata Lananggalih, an investigator with Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee, told reporters in Jakarata on Thursday that Flight 8501 climbed from a cruising altitude of 32,000 feet to 37,400 - more than 5,000 feet in less than 30 seconds.








Captain Iriyanto - an experienced former military jet pilot - is believed to have taken over control of the aircraft from First Officer Plesel when it started to ascend and then descend sharply, officials said





It has been claimed pilots disabled a critical computer system that keeps planes under control


Recovered AirAsia QZ8501 tail brought to Indonesian port




Experts are still unsure why after cutting the power to the computer system the pilots weren’t able to fly the plane safely manually.



However, John Cox, a former A320 pilot who is now a safety consultant, told Bloomberg that their abrupt climb into higher air space likely caused a ‘very pronounced stall’.
Cox advised that ‘particularly with an Airbus’ no computer control system should be switched off in case it affects another component.

The latest insight into what could have led to the AirAsia plane’s crash comes as it was revealed the co-pilot was actually at the controls of the doomed flight just before it plunged into the ocean.
Indonesia's lead investigator said the Airbus, which was less than halfway into a two-hour flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore when it disappeared, was being piloted by second-in-command Remi Plesel.
He was flying Flight QZ8501 prior to it crashing into the sea, not Captain Iriyanto - an experienced former military jet pilot - head National Transport Safety Committee (NTSC) investigator Mardjono Siswosuwarno announced on Thursday.

Cpt Iriyanto, 53, is believed to have taken over control of the aircraft from First Officer Plesel when it started to ascend and then descend sharply, officials said.
Data from the black box flight data recorder has provided the accident probe with a 'pretty clear picture' of what happened in the last moments of the AirAsia flight, but officials offered few details.
'The second-in-command, popularly known as the co-pilot, who usually sits to the right of the ****pit. At the time, he was flying the plane,' the investigator said, referring to First Officer Plesel.
'The captain, sitting to the left, was the pilot monitoring.'
Throughout his career as an engineer for the energy company Total, the first officer had wanted to fly, so a few years ago he quit his job and learned how to.
He got a job with AirAsia, and at the time of the accident had earned 2,275 flying hours.
His sister Renee, who last spoke to him on December 26, previously told France's RTL radio: 'Aviation was his passion and he was able to make it real.
'He told me that things were going well, that he'd had a good Christmas. He was happy. The rains were starting, the weather was bad, it was raining a lot. He was going to work the next day.'

The cause of AirAsia's first fatal crash, which occurred about 40 minutes into the flight, is still not exactly known.
Investigators said the ****pit voice and flight data recorders showed that the plane had been cruising at a stable altitude before the crash.
The aircraft was in sound condition when it took off and all crew members were properly certified, they said.
'The plane was flying before the incident within the limits of its weight and balance envelope,' investigator Siswosuwarno said. 'While the flight crew had valid licences and medical certificates.'
Indonesian officials previously said the aircraft climbed abruptly from its cruising height and then stalled, or lost lift, before plunging out of control into the sea.
NTSC chief Tatang Kurniadi told the same Jakarta news conference that Indonesia had submitted its preliminary report on the crash to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on Wednesday, as required under global aviation rules.
The report, which has not been made public, was purely factual and contained no analysis, he said, adding that the full, final report would take at least six to seven months to complete.




A total of 70 bodies have now been recovered after the plane crashed with 162 people on board


It was also announced that the search for dozens of victims still unaccounted for could end within days if no more bodies were found.
A multinational search and recovery operation has led to the discovery of 70 bodies in the Java Sea.
It was hoped more would be found following the discovery of the plane's fuselage, but days of rough weather and poor underwater visibility hampered navy divers' efforts.
Cpt Iriyanto was an experienced Air Force pilot who flew F-16 fighter jets before taking early retirement to become a commercial airline pilot.
He had more than 20,000 flying hours, of which 6,100 were with AirAisa on the Airbus 320.
