Wreckage’ of missing AirAsia jet is spotted in sea by search plane

Looks
like the AirAsia flight that went missing early yesterday morning may
be at the bottom of the sea. Indonesian officials say a search plane
hunting for the missing plane have spotted objects in the sea believed
to be wreckage from the plane which was carrying 155 passengers and 7
crew members.




An
Australian Orion aircraft early this morning detected suspicious
objects near Nangka island, about 160 kilometres south-west of
Pangkalan Bun, near central Kalimantan, which is about 1,120 kilometres
from the location where the plane lost contact while an Indonesian
helicopter saw two oily spots in the search area a few hours later,
this is according to Indonesian officials.



Experts believe that the aircraft was likely flying too slow to avoid a thunderstorm they encountered and this caused the plane to stall and crash.
