Reuters reports that an Indonesian aircraft with 189 people on board crashed into the sea on Monday. This as it tried to circle back to the capital, Jakarta, from where it had taken off minutes earlier. officials said there were likely no survivors.
Lion Air flight JT610 was an almost new Boeing 737 MAX 8. The plane was en route to Pangkal Pinang, capital of the Bangka-Belitung tin mining region. Rescue officials said they had recovered some human remains from the crash site, about 9 mile off the coast.
Indonesia is one of the world’s fastest-growing aviation markets. Its safety record is patchy. industry experts said if all aboard have died, the crash will be the country’s second-worst air disaster since 1997.
