Why would Lion Air Chief Executive VOLUNTEER information about a technical fault on his aircraft yesterday??
I see Lion Air founder Rusdi Kirana is a politician. Indonesian ambassador to Malaysia
And that Indonesian government Auditors were on board, who will have been looking into corruption.
The pilot should have been able to bring this airliner down safely in the sea.
Sounds to me like it was being flown remotely
Government officials are reportedly among the passengers aboard the downed aircraft.
Finance Ministry spokesperson Nufransa Wira Sakti confirmed that 20 ministry officials were among the 178 adult passengers on the flight.
Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said they had been returning to their office in Pangkalpinang.
One Environment and Forestry Ministry official and four from the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry were also on the flight, while reports have said that officials from the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) and the Bangka Belitung Legislative Council may also have been on board.
This is what happened after the ill-fated Lion Air flight took off. All times are in Jakarta local time.
6.20am: JT 610 takes off from Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. Its arrival at Pangkal Pingang airport is scheduled for 7.20am
6.23am: Pilot Bhavye Suneja asks air traffic control for permission to turn around and return to Jakarta airport. His request is approved.
6.33am: The aircraft loses contact with air traffic control and plunges into coastal waters less than 35m deep in the Java Sea.
FRIGHTENING details have emerged of problems on the previous flight of the ill-fated Lion Air plane that crashed into the Java Sea, killing all 189 on board.
Issues which should have served as a warning, such as rapid descents that reportedly terrified passengers, occurred on the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet before it took its final flight on Monday.
The plane, which flew from Bali to Jakarta on Sunday, suddenly dropped several times in the first few minutes of the flight.
“About three to eight minutes after it took off, I felt like the plane was losing power and unable to rise,” passenger Alon Soetanto told TVOne.
“That happened several times during the flight. We felt like in a roller coaster. Some passengers began to panic and vomit.”
Passengers from the Sunday flight, which was delayed, took to social media to report concerns about problems with the air-conditioning system and cabin lighting before the plane eventually departed, the Strait Times reported.

In a detailed post online, Indonesian TV presenter Conchita Caroline, who was on Sunday’s flight, said boarding was delayed by more than an hour because a technical problem forced it to return to its parking space.
“I was angry because as a passenger who had paid her ticket, we have every right to question the aircraft’s safety,” she said in the now-removed post, according to the Times.
She said there was a “weird” engine noise upon takeoff that lasted for the whole flight.
After its initial struggle, the aircraft eventually came to a steady climb and cruise before landing safely. It was not the same story when the same plane took off for its one-hour flight the next day.
Passengers on Lion Air’s ill-fated flight JT610 experienced similar sickening drops in altitude in the 13 minutes they were in the air before the plane plummeted with rapid speed into the Java Sea.
The Boeing 737 MAX 8 struggled from the moment it began on what would be its final flight on Monday, erratically climbing and dropping until it eventually plunged 1479m in just 21 seconds.
