JAKARTA, Dec 30 – Red and white debris sighted off Indonesia’s Kalimantan coast is likely to be part the Indonesia AirAsia jet presumed to have crashed in shallow waters off the Indonesian coast, a transport ministry official said today. An Airbus A320-200 carrying 162 people and operated by Indonesia AirAsia disappeared on Sunday morning during a flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore.
“The debris is red and white,” Djoko Murjatmodjo, acting director general of air transportation at the transportation ministry, told reporters. “We are checking if it’s debris from the aircraft. It’s probably from the body of the aircraft.” Based on the size and colouring of the debris, it was likely to be part of the missing jet, Murjatmodjo added.
