Australian Aircraft Detects ‘Suspicious Objects’ – Report
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 29 – An Australian Orion aircraft has spotted ‘suspicious objects’ near the area where the search and rescue mission for the missing AirAsia Indonesia Flight QZ8501 is currently ongoing.
The Australian aircraft, which is part of the SAR operation, spotted the objects near Nangka island, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Pangkalan Bun, near central Kalimantan which is some 700 miles from where the missing AirAsia plane lost communication with the Jakarta air traffic control yesterday.
According to Associated Press, Jakarta’s Air Force base commander Rear Marshal Dwi Putranto was informed of the matter today. However, it cannot be confirmed if the objects were part of the missing plane, the AP report said. “We cannot be sure whether it is part of the missing AirAsia plane. We are now moving in that direction, which is in cloudy conditions,” the report quoted Putranto as saying.
