Source Title: a plane carrying 62 people crashed in Indonesia, officials revealed a strange detail
A Boeing 737-500 of Indonesia’s sanfoqi airlines lost contact shortly after taking off from the capital, Jakarta, on the 9th local time. It was later found to have crashed in the waters near Jakarta. Radar showed that the plane had dropped 10000 feet a minute before it lost contact.
Indonesian transport minister Abdi disclosed at a news conference on the same day that the plane failed to follow the established course after taking off.
Indonesian transportation minister Abdi: the air traffic control personnel found that the plane was not heading 75 degrees (northeast), but was heading northwest. Airport air traffic controllers had asked the pilot to confirm the course, but it wasn’t long, seconds later, that the plane disappeared from the radar.
Another official from Indonesia’s national search and rescue agency said the plane did not send any signals until it crashed.
There were 56 passengers on board, including 46 adults, 7 children and 3 infants, as well as four cabin attendants and two pilots, a spokesman for sanfoqi said.
