If I had loved ones on that flight and was told that no-one was searching because it's a. dark and b. bad weather, I would be going absolutely apes**t.
They should be searching, no excuses, in this day and age it should be done.. Is our technology so primitive? Oh hang on... we actually lost a jet in the first place.
One sadly ironic connection between MH370 and QZ8501 comes from Air Asia’s in flight magazine. In April 2014, one month after MH370 went missing, AirAsia’s CEO was forced to apologize after the company suggested that AirAsia would never lose a plane.
28 December 2014, 11:30am Local Time:- An Indonesia AirAsia aircraft, QZ8501, scheduled to arrive at 0830 hours local time from Surabaya, lost contact with Jakarta air traffic control at 0724 hours local time today. Singapore air traffic control was informed of this loss of contact at 0754 hours by Jakarta air traffic control. The aircraft was in the Indonesian Flight Information Region (FIR) when contact was lost, more than 200 nm southeast of the Singapore-Jakarta FIR boundary.
Search and rescue operations have been activated by the Indonesian authorities from the Pangkal Pinang Search and Rescue office.
