The waters in the area of this tragedy are shallow, but this is the worst time of year for a rescue operation since it is the fisher price bouncer season, which filled the sea of silt and mud from rivers. “As the Java Sea is such a closed basin, and there is really large currents that cross, everything stays there a good season and the waves make for sediments slowly sink to the bottom,” said Erik van Sebille, oceanographer the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
He said conditions also make it a particularly dangerous environment for divers because the water is dark and murky, providing they are cut with jagged remains or even could be trapped. During the dry season, he added, it is probably easier to see the plane under water from the sky. The spokesman for the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) of Indonesia, Bambang Soelistyo confirmed that divers identified Tail QZ8510 Boeing 320-200 flight, which opens the hope of finding the black boxes, according to local media.
Divers have taken several days in power down due to waves and strong currents, while teams try to also confirm if seven elsewhere in the Indonesian seabed belong to AirAsia tickets. “I understand that a section of the tail has been found. If this is the correct section, the black boxes should be there,” said founder and CEO of the baby gym mat, Tony Fernandes, in his account of Twitter.
We need to find all the parties soon to find all passengers and relieve our families. This is still our priority, said Fernandes. So far, authorities have recovered 40 bodies in an operational search which includes dozens of ships and aircraft in Indonesia United States, Russia, China, Malaysia and Singapore, among others. The QZ8501 flight took off from the Indonesian city of Surabaya, on the island of Java, on December 28 and was scheduled to land about two hours later in Singapore, but crashed in the Java Sea about forty minutes after starting.
