Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737-500 missing 5 mins after departure.

Authorities in Indonesia reports that they have lost contact with Sriwijaya Air Flight 182 immediately after it took off from Jakarta.


The Sriwijaya Boeing 737-500, registration PK-CLC performing flight SJ-182 from Jakarta to Pontianak (Indonesia), was climbing out of Jakarta about 11nm north of Jakarta's Sokarno International Airport over the Java Sea when radar and radio contact was lost with the aircraft.

According to ADS-B data the aircraft had departed Sokarno's runway 25R at 07:36Z, was climbing through 10,600 feet at 07:39:50Z about 11nm north of Sokarno Airport, and was at 07:40:11Z at 1400 feet about 1.6nm north-northeast of that position (average sink rate 26,300 fpm).


Suspected debris was later found that may have been from Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737-500.


According to reports, a ship located 6nm from the suspected impact site near Lancang Island, reported that they observed an object fall into the waters and set course towards the site.



They found flight jackets, body parts, and debris of an aircraft. The ship is currently holding position about half a mile off the observed crash site until rescue and recovery services (of Basarnas) arrive. The water is about 15 to 16 meters deep at the crash site.
