The Flight SJ182, Boeing 737-500 (Reg. NO. PK-CLC MSN 27323) was reported today to have disappeared from radars shortly after takeoff from Jakarta and lost more than 10,000 feet of altitude in less than a minute, about four minutes after departure from Jakarta.

Tracking showed the path of the plane ending off the coast just north of Jakarta after the plane abruptly lost altitude.

The Indonesian Navy official Abdul Rasyid told Reuters that the coordinates of the plane had been determined and that ships have been deployed to the location.

It was later declared to have 'reportedly' crashed between Male Island and Lancang Island.

A sea and air search effort is well underway. The rescue operation, which includes 11 navy ships, is set to continue throughout the night.

However, witnesses said they had seen and heard at least one explosion.

Fisherman Solihin, who goes by one name, told the BBC Indonesian service he had witnessed a crash and his captain decided to return to land.

"The plane fell like lightning into the sea and exploded in the water,"
he said.

"It was pretty close to us, the shards of a kind of plywood almost hit my ship."

Fishermen and local divers had discovered pieces of debris and human parts, but authorities cannot immediately confirm it is related to the missing plane.

The Indonesia Transport Ministry who ordered an investigation into the incident has set up a crisis centre for families of passengers and crew-members at the airport.


In March 2019, the Boeing 737 MAX passenger airliner was grounded worldwide after 346 people died in two crashes, Lion Air Flight 610 on October 29, 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 on March 10, 2019.

The Lion Air Flight 610 was a scheduled domestic flight operated by the Indonesian airline Lion Air where the Boeing 737 MAX operating the route crashed into the Java Sea, North of Jakarta (12 miles away from the suspected scene of today's crash) 13 minutes after takeoff, killing all 189 passengers and crew. However, this is a different 737.

Boeing has also responded to the ill-fated Pontianak-bound flight, extending condolences to the families of passengers and crew onboard.

We are aware of media reports from Jakarta, and are closely monitoring the situation. We are working to gather more information.

This is a very sad one.
Many casualties will most def be recorded.
It lost more than 10,000 feet in altitude in one minute, four minutes after departure, according to the flight tracking service.

And we remember this incident is coming a day after the one-year anniversary of the shooting down of a Ukraine International Airlines flight in Iran with 176 people aboard, one of two major airline crashes in 2020.

What is Sriwijaya Air?
A quick research about the airline.

Sriwijaya Air, based in Jakarta, Indonesia, started flying in 2003 and typically carries nearly 1 million passengers a month, according to the airline's website. 
It is a discount carrier with low fares and fees, a la Spirit, Allegiant and Frontier in the United States.

The airline mostly flies routes within Indonesia but has limited international service to Malaysia and China, according to the aviation data firm Cirium. Saturday's flight from Jakarta was bound for the island of Borneo, which is about an hour away by air.

The airline is the fifth largest airline in Indonesia based on flights, accounting for 10% of Indonesia flights last year, according to Cirium. Lion Air is Indonesia's biggest carrier.

Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect. — Captain A. G. Lamplugh,

Once a plane dissapears from Radar.. It should be treated as a crash till otherwise proven. They should have moved logistics immediately to the last known location of the plane, especially as it was over the water.. The few minutes after a plane crash is very vital especially on sea. The sea could wash away the signs and wreckage and it would become one of those unsolved mysteries.. Planes just don't disappear from radars..
