ISLAMABAD: Signs have been emerged about the missing AirAsia plane QZ8501 in the sea off Borneo island.
According to the spokesman of an Indonesia National Search and Rescue Yusuf Latif, white, red and black objects have been spotted in south of Pangkalan Bun.
It may be noted that Air Asia’s jets are red and white. He said the agency has dispatched at least one helicopter to pick up at least ten pieces of debris to be checked.
The spokesman said that this is the most significant finding, but we cannot confirm anything until the investigation is completed.
An AirAsia flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore lost contact with air traffic control on Sunday, Indonesian media said, citing a Transport Ministry official had reported. The plane had 165 passengers and crew on board.
The flight had been due in Singapore at 8:30 a.m. Singapore time (0030 GMT). The Singapore airport had said on its website that the status of the flight was “delayed”. The incident comes at the end of a disastrous year for Malaysia’s airlines. National flag carrier Malaysia Airlines lost two aircraft this year. Its flight MH370 went missing on March 8 on a trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board.
