AirAsia A320 An Airbus A320, registered PK-AXC with Indonesia AirAsia, operating flight QZ8501 with 162 passengers and crew aboard went missing on Sunday December 28. It left Surabaya at 5.20am local time and was due to arrive in Singapore at 8.20am.Before communication was lost, the pilots asked to deviate left of the planned flight route and to climb to an altitude of 38,000ft to avoid severe thunder storms.Indonesia air traffic control agreed to the request but shortly afterwards at 7.24 am contact was lost as it flew over the Java Sea near Belitung Island.Weather radar images of the area where contact was lost show intense thunderstorm activity.However pilots believe that the crew in trying to avoid the thunderstorm by climbing somehow have found themselves flying too slow and thus induced an aerodynamic stall similar to the circumstances of the loss of Air France Flt AF447 to crash in 2009. This could be caused by a variety of different factors. However, with a sophisticated aircraft such as the A320 this should be impossibleOne former A320 pilot who spoke to AirlineRatings.com said the A320 was flying far too slow when it disappeared and it “may have been in a stall.”“Flying slow at high altitude is very dangerous,” said the pilot. The A320 was shown on radar at 36,000ft at 353kts over 100kts too slow for the altitude and wind conditions. AirAsia and Airbus yesterday confirmed the plane was missing. “At this time, search and rescue operations are being conducted under the guidance of the Indonesian Civil Aviation Authority,” AirAsia said.The nationalities of those on board are 155 Indonesian, three are South Korean, one French, one Malaysian one Singaporean and one Briton.CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam said there was very bad weather in the area. “We still had lines of very heavy thunderstorms when the plane was flying,” Mr Van Dam said.AirAsia has been in business as a low cost carrier since 2001 and has carried more than 217 million passengers.Until flight QZ8501, it had a perfect safety record.AirAsia’s Chief Executive Tony Fernandes, who flew yesterday to Surabaya, told media; “We don’t want to speculate but right now of course the plane has been missing for 12 hours and there’s a deep sense of depression here.“This is a massive shock to us and we are devastated by what has happened. It’s unbelievable.”Mr Fernandes said the A320 captain was very experienced with more than 20,500 hours and almost 7,000 of them with AirAsia.Sunu Widyatmoko, CEO of AirAsia Indonesia said, “We are deeply shocked and saddened by this incident. We are cooperating with the relevant authorities to the fullest extent to determine the cause of this incident. In the meantime, our main priority is keeping the families of our passengers and colleagues informed on the latest developments.”“We will do everything possible to support them as the investigation continues and have already mobilized a support team to help take care of their immediate needs, including accommodation and travel arrangements. A briefing center has also been set up in Surabaya for the families.”AirAsia has established an Emergency Call Centre available for family or friends of those who may have been on board the aircraft.The number for the hotline is +622129850801.A multinational search will resume at first light Indonesian time on Monday December 29. Singapore, Malaysia and Australia are assisting in the search.

He took over in recent years after his dad Lee handed down the keys to the next generation, something he plans to do himself down the road. The farm also recently brought on the full-time employee Joe Ringholz.They’ve experienced a unique planting season. Some much needed rain this past Thursday was “a godsend.” Dusten did say that they should’ve stayed home with regard to planting on May 9th as everything put in the field that day had to be replanted.Ty Higgins talks more about the farm in the video below.
A group of environmental activists of Odisha’s Berhampur are engaged in retrieving national flags made of paper and plastic that have been thrown all around the city after the Republic Day celebrations.They are members of Berhampur Sabuja Bahini. “We were hurt to see our national flag thrown in garbage dumps, drains and on the roadside,” said BSB president Sibaram Panigrahy. “Many people buy paper and polythene flags to express nationalistic fervour on Republic Day. However, after a few hours, they have no hesitation in disposing of these flags in a derogatory manner,” said BSB member P. Aravind Kumar.In its bid to create awareness among the people to respect the Tricolour, the BSB started its drive to salvage the discarded flags on January 27. During the drive, which continued on Monday, the activists told the residents that the national flag is like a picture of deities and it should not be disposed of unceremoniously. The Tricolours salvaged by this group are being cleaned up and stored. “We will reuse them in future events,” said BSB secretary M. Dilip Kumar. The members of the group said they were happy to see that the use of polythene flags had gone down drastically in Berhampur in comparison to the Independence Day celebrations last year.
