Indonesian authorities have confirmed they located the wreckage of AirAsia flight 8501. The recovery operation is under way already, with a number of countries contributing resources to aid a difficult effort in high seas. But, questions still remain for both the victims and the airline industry.
In case you haven’t heard yet, there’s another missing plane. This time it’s AirAsia’s flight 8501, traveling from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore. AirAsia is a solid airline with a good safety record. While it’s still early to rule out any cause at this point, thunderstorms/severe weather are suspected as contributing to the disappearance.
