27 Jan 2015

Indonesia’s military, on 27 Jan 2015 withdrew from search and recovery efforts a month after an AirAsia flight 8501 Airbus A320 passenger jet crashed into the sea killing all 162 people on board, navy officials said. Rear Admiral Widodo, head of the navy’s western fleet, told reporters in Pangkalan Bun: “The operation has been ongoing for 30 days so the joint team has been pulled in Pangkalan Bun, the base for the search effort. We apologize to the families of the victims. We tried our best to look for the missing victims.” The Indonesian Civilian National Search and Rescue Agency said it may press on with the search for bodies. But its efforts will be hampered by the loss of the military’s large vessels and heavy recovery equipment. Tatang Zaenuddin, the agency’s deputy of operations said:”Perhaps we will do regular operations with help from fishermen and communities near the coast to find other victims” The agency will hold a news conference on 28 Jan 2015. WE SENSE A CONSPIRACY TO COVER UP THE FACTS.


FACT: Divers have recovered both the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder from the sea floor. However, the results will not be released to the public. WHY?

FACT: Divers found and  recovered the empennage (tail section) of the downed jetliner without much difficulty before Indonesian authorities had a change of attitude about retrieving other compromising aircraft parts.

FACT: Malaysia Navy divers (100 strong) located the main part of the fuselage in water 100 feet deep (Folks, that is sport-diving depth.) The fuselage is thought to contain most of the victims; even so, after some apparent foot dragging (blaming the weather, visibility, currents etc.), the recovery team made three (3) half hearted efforts, using ropes to pull up the aircraft remains before giving up on recovery per today’s announcement. Frankly, watching recovery film, it seemed to us that the divers were attempting to destroy (break-up) the fuselage  rather than recover it. Over the course of the last month, fishermen and others did find some 70 bodies. About 90 more are still missing; many believed to have been in the fuselage remains.

FACT: THE COCKPIT HAS BEEN LOCATED, but no effort has been made to recover it. It should contain the remains of the pilot/co-pilot. Equally important, it will probably show that the the cabin exploded just behind the pilots as it did in Aloha Airlines Flight 243 AQ 243 (see previous article), that would be typical of explosive decompression at altitude. IT IS THAT INFORMATION THAT AIRBUS INDUSTRIES WISHES TO SUPPRESS, BECAUSE IT WOULD SHOW A DESIGN FLAW THAT MIGHT BE PERVASIVE AND AFFECT A FLEET OF SOME 6,100 A320s, AND WORSE YET, FUTURE SALES OF THIS IMPORTANT INDUSTRY TO FRANCE.

FACT: About six (6) other jetliners were in the same stormy Java Sea area at the time of the catastrophic event and suffered no real problems or delays.

FACT: Indonesian Government owns about half of AirAsia’s fleet; so they are unwilling to “shoot themselves in the foot”. They have obviously retrenched from past statements about “for the good of the (aeronautical) industry”. Notice that now, Indonesian press releases are being made by lower rank officials who have no electorate to answer to; But, what about the safety of the flying public? Must we wait for another such event? In 1950, and In denial, De Havilland did so with their Comet aircraft, and had three (3) blow up over the British Isles before someone said…Wait a minute, there is something wrong here!

FACT: The approved ceiling for the Airbus A320 is 42,000 feet; yet, it blew up (literally) at much less than that.  Authorities already know that key fact from the “black-boxes”, but appear to be concealing the information. Initially the Investigators did say that the cabin voice recorders showed there was no evidence of foul-play. Now no more info releases. Indonesia’s part in this investigation stinks!


INDONESIA’S NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY COMMITTEE (NTSC) head, Tatang Kurniadi said NTSC will submit its initial findings on the crash this week to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).The preliminary report (which the ICAO requires within 30 days of an accident), will include “information on the plane, the number of passengers and other information like that”, said NTSC investigator Suryanto, but it will not include analysis of the two flight recorders. Data from radar and the aircraft’s two “black box” flight recorders will provide investigators with a clearer picture of what occurred during the final minutes of the flight, but investigators say they have yet to start their analysis as they have been compiling other data for the inquiry. The NTSC will hold an annual media conference this week on its work over the past year but it is not expected to discuss details of its investigation of the AirAsia crash. FOLKS! THIS IS CLASSICAL FOOT-DRAGGING BY RESPONSIBLE INDONESIAN AUTHORITIES. WE HAVE ALWAYS FEARED THAT WITH SO MUCH AT STAKE FOR FRANCE, AND INDONESIA, EVENTS WOULD TAKE SUCH A TURN.

Transport Minister Ignasius Jonan told a parliamentary hearing last week that, based on radar data, the plane had climbed faster than normal in its final minutes, and then stalled. YEAH! Stalled-hell! it “blew up”, and dropped from the sky in pieces. As a matter of fact, many hair-brained possibilities have been advanced to obscure/conceal the real facts.

The final report on the crash is now expected within a year. A lot of preventable bad things can happen in a year.
