Cuaca buruk, ombak besar halang carian QZ8501, kata Indonesia..

Pihak berkuasa Indonesia di wilayah Bangka Belitung khuatir usaha mencari dan menyelamat pesawat AirAsia QZ8501 yang hilang akan terjejas disebabkan cuaca buruk dan ombak besar.

Portal berita Indonesia Kompas.com memetik jurucakap Agensi Mencari dan Menyelamat (SAR) Nasional (Basarnas) Bangka Belitung, Jhoni Supriadi di Pangkalpinang sebagai berkata, ombak setinggi dua meter melambatkan pasukan SAR daripada sampai ke lokasi di mana dipercayai pesawat itu terhempas.

Menurut laporan terdahulu, kapalterbang Airbus A320 yang hilang itu dipercayai terhempas di lokasi 03.22.46 Selatan dan 108.50.07 Timur, di perairan sekitar 80 hingga 100 batu nautika dari Belitung semasa terbang dari Surabaya ke Singapura pagi ini.

Kompas.com melaporkan dalam keadaan cuaca normal, ia mengambil masa 4 jam untuk sampai ke lokasi itu, manakala masa yang diambil akan berganda dalam cuaca buruk.

Experts say ‘something serious’ happened to AirAsia flight...

Various aviation experts and correspondents closely following news of the missing AirAsia flight QZ8501 have said that something very bad must have occurred to result in it going off the radar.

With so little factual information currently available except for the extreme weather conditions, aviation expert Doug Maclean told Sky News that all the evidence currently suggests that “something very serious” had happened to flight QZ8501.

Another air crash search and rescue expert William Waldock from the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University meanwhile zeroed in on the aircraft’s crew requesting for an unusual route, remarking that this was surprising because the weather, although previously described as extreme, “didn’t seem to be anything unusual”.

Meanwhile Singapore’s Sunday Times reported: “No distress signal was sent, said the Indonesian air transport authorities.”

According to an AFP report, Indonesian officials are sticking to the theory that extreme weather conditions were most likely the cause of the aircraft now having gone missing.

An official from Indonesia’s transport ministry said the pilot asked to ascend 6,000 feet to 38,000 feet to avoid heavy clouds.

“The plane is in good condition but the weather is not so good,” Djoko Murjatmodjo told a press conference at Jakarta’s airport, addressing reports of severe storms in the area where the jet went missing.

The Indonesian air force has since despatched two of its planes to scour an area of the Java Sea, southwest of Pangkalan Bun in Kalimantan province.

“The weather is cloudy and the area is surrounded by sea. We are still on our way so we won’t make an assumption on what happened to the plane,” said Indonesian air force spokesman Hadi Cahyanto.- fmt

AirAsia flight from Indonesia to Singapore goes missing

AirAsia flight turns back after technical problem...

An AirAsia flight has turned back after facing technical problems, according to Berita Harian.

The Langkawi-bound flight from Penang took off at around 4.30pm and was due to arrive at 5.05pm.

However, the report quoted a passenger as saying that Flight AK6242 made a turnback some 10 minutes into the flight.

E Subash, the passenger, said the captain informed them that there was a technical problem.

According to flight tracker portal FlightAware, the aircraft was about halfway through to Langkawi before circling south of the island and turning back to the Penang International Airport.

The report noted that the flight has since been rescheduled and took off at around 6pm.

The same flight tracker portal showed the aircraft having landed safely in Langkawi at 6.44pm.

String of air disasters

Air turnbacks are not uncommon in commercial air travel, but a string of air disasters has created jitters among travellers.

AirAsia Flight QZ8501 - which was bound for Singapore from Surabaya, Indonesia - lost contact with air traffic control this morning.

At writing time, the aircraft with 162 passengers and crew on board has yet to be found.

Indonesian authorities have deployed assets to the vicinity of Pulau Belitung in between Singapore and Sumatra to verify unconfirmed reports that the aircraft had crashed there.

The aircraft belongs to AirAsia Indonesia, though its parent company is Malaysian.

The lost of the aircraft follows twin disasters involving Malaysia Airlines (MAS).

MAS' Flight MH370 - bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur - disappeared without a trace in March and is believed to have crashed in the Indian Ocean after drastically deviating from its path for unknown reasons.

To date, the wreckage has yet to be found.

In July, MAS' Flight MH17 - bound for Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam - was shot down over Ukranian airspace as Russia-backed rebels battle government forces in the region.- mk


Air Asia Flight QZ8501 – Malaysia's 3rd lost plane in a year...

When I was young, I met a Malaysian Air Force pilot who told me about his time as a flight cadet. He and his friends had trained on Cessna planes at the Kepala Batas Air Force Base, which was surrounded by paddy fields.

Those paddy fields, he said, acted as insurance during their landings. Being trainee pilots, they didn’t have much experience, and on occasion would mess up their landings. On a good day, they would walk away laughing after crash landing in the field, unhurt but shaken.

On bad days, they ended up carrying out the body of their friend after putting out the fiery crash.

Then the count and the wait would begin. Plane crashes, he said, always came in threes.

According to him, it is a superstition that they pilots shared. In the wake of a plane crash, everyone would be jumpy, as they believed it was just a matter of time before another two would drop out from the sky. If your luck was good, you would walk out of your crash alive.

I remembered the pilot’s ‘rule-of-three’ superstition when Malaysia lost MH370 in March. And when MH17 was shot down, I started wondering whether there was any truth to it. I guess a part of me was waiting for the other shoe to drop.

And today, December 28, the worst finally happened – AirAsia Indonesia Flight QZ8501 has disappeared.

The plane, which was travelling from Surabaya to Singapore, lost contact with air traffic control at 7:24am and has not been heard from since. The Indonesian Civil Aviation Authority is spearheading search and rescue operations.

Flight QZ8501 has 155 passengers onboard – 138 adults, 16 children and one infant – together with two pilots and five cabin crew. Nationalities of those onboard are as follows: 155 Indonesians, 3 South Koreans, 1 French, 1 Malaysian, 1 Singaporean and 1 from the United Kingdom.

News of its disappearance first came to light when AirAsia released an announcement on its Facebook page shortly before noon. AirAsia then switched its masthead and logo to gray, which many Facebook users interpreted as an ominous sign.

The disappearance of the aircraft has already been widely reported by mainstream media and has gone viral. Concerned users are monitoring AirAsia’s Facebook page, sharing calls for prayers and messages of sympathy and hope.

While many are still in disbelief that Malaysia has lost yet another plane this year, many people are slowly coming to terms with it and are steeling themselves to face the nation’s third aviation tragedy this year.

Although I, like countless many Malaysians, are praying for a miracle, I can’t help but remember the old pilot’s story and his superstition about ‘the-rule-of-three’.

Let us pray for the passengers and crew of Air Asia QZ8501 and their families.- Mike Tan, theantdaily
