Suryanto Cahyono, head of Indonesia’s National Transportation Security Council, said today (10th) that the committee has begun to investigate the cause of the crash of Sanfoqi Airlines Flight SJ182.
“We sent two Indonesian Search and Rescue Bureaus to investigate.
The crew went to the accident sea area for location investigation.
We need to find more information about the location of the plane crash.”
In addition, investigators also collect information from the Airport Air Traffic Control Bureau, the Meteorological Climate and Geophysical Bureau, and Sanfozi Airlines.
Since the crashed passenger plane was produced by Boeing, the Safety Committee also notified the U.S. security department.
Admiral Hardy, the commander-in-chief of the Indonesian National Army, said at a press conference on the naval ship participating in the search and rescue work that divers recovered fragments of the same color as the SJ182 passenger plane from the scene.
The aircraft’s registration number, landing gear wheels and life jackets were also found, adding that the visibility and condition in the water are very good, and the search for the victims continues.
Jakarta police spokesman Yusri Yunus also told the media that the police had received two body bags, one containing the victims’ trousers and shirts, and the other containing the bodies of the victims.
At the same time, he said that the police have set up a command post at the Karamatjati Police Hospital in Jakarta to find the families of the victims as soon as possible and identify the victims through DNA comparisons.
The crashed flight SJ182 took off from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta on the afternoon of the 9th and was scheduled to fly to Kundien, the capital of West Kalimantan Province, with a 90-minute voyage.
The registration data shows that the passenger plane involved is nearly 27 years old and can carry about 130 people. There were 62 people at the time of the plane crash, and the probability of survival was slim.
Flightradar24, an airline tracking website, posted on its social media: “The airliner lost contact four minutes after take-off.
It fell more than 3,000 meters in one minute, compared with an altitude of only 80 meters before it disappeared from the radar screen.
Sanfozi Air was founded in November 2003 and its fleet consists of Boeing 737 aircraft and ATR 72-600 jets.
In addition to operating domestic flights in Indonesia, it also has a few international flights, including flights to Penang, Malaysia and Dili, the capital of East Timor.
