Default Another 737 Crash in Indonesia

This one is a -500, in the water minutes after T/O. Wondering if it will get inordinate press coverage, or if the media will try to tie it in to the max? Reuters at least pointed out that Indonesia is a not a paragon of aviation safety.

ABC morning news at least made the distinction.

Sad to hear. Very interesting to see it drop from 10000ft in 60 seconds.

Does anyone have the ATC radio of this? I'm not sure where it would be on liveatc.

I was actually watching the Air Disasters episode on the LAM Mozambique flight 470 crash by suicide, which took a dive as well from about that altitude.

That's the last thing I'd think of, more likely spatial disorientation and/or instrument malfunction... that seems to be a recurring theme. Suicides seem more likely to occur if somebody goes to the lav and leaves the other pilot alone, I'm hoping nobody does that anymore. LAM and germanwings are both recent, both had that MO and occurred in quick succession of each other... how many case studies does it take to change the rule?

Heard reports of heavy rain in the area around the time of the crash,any possibility there was convective activity around the area they might have encountered?

Watch the playback starting at 7:38. Pay attention to heading and groundspeed.

Glad they are located. Sure there is an explanation as to what happened. Rather baffling as to why. Condolences to the families.

Sad. A Covid test requirement forced them off their original flight and onto the doomed flight.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/10/asia/...ntl/index.html

"Minarni and her husband were supposed to fly home January 5 on another carrier -- Nam Air, he said.
But when they arrived at the airport Tuesday, they were informed that in order to board the flight, they would need to take a coronavirus PCR test -- a process that would delay them from flying for another two days.
Once the couple got the results of their test, they were able to rebook their flight home -- but this time, it would be on another carrier, Sriwijaya Air."
