Lion Air crash: Sonar and drones used in Indonesian search

Drones and sonar technology have been deployed in Indonesia to search for a Lion Air passenger plane which crashed into the sea on Monday.

Flight JT 610 went down after taking off from Jakarta with 189 passengers and crew on board.

There has been no sign of survivors but debris and personal belongings have been collected from the water.

There is no indication yet of what caused the plane to go down 13 minutes after taking off.

Officials say the pilot of the Boeing 737 had asked to return to Soekarno-Hatta airport shortly before losing contact with air traffic control, just 13 minutes into the flight.

A technical log obtained by the BBC showed the plane had encountered technical problems while flying from Bali to Jakarta the previous day.

The log showed one instrument was "unreliable" and the pilot had to hand over to the first officer.

Lion Air's chief executive Edward Sirait said on Tuesday that the plane had been repaired before taking off again.


Flight JT 610 was heading for the western city of Pangkal Pinang on Monday but immediately encountered difficulties.

Thirteen minutes into the flight it suddenly sped up and lost altitude, falling into the Java Sea, north-east of Jakarta.

People who were on boats in the area at the time have reported seeing it fall from the sky.

The head of Indonesia's disaster agency, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, said on Twitter that sonar devices were being used in the waters near Karawang - the plane's last known point of contact.

"Hopefully this morning we can find the wreckage or fuselage," Soerjanto Tjahjono, the head of Indonesia's transport safety panel told news agency Reuters.

Investigators are also looking for the plane's black box recorder, which will provide key flight data.
