Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
Search and rescue officials were admitting to the press what AirAsia officials have been trying to avoid: that flight QZ8501 is at the bottom of the sea.
“Based on the co-ordinates given to us and evaluation that the estimated crash position is in the sea, the hypothesis is the plane is at the bottom of the sea,” Bambang Soelistyo, Indonesia’s search and rescue agency head, told reporters at a news conference in Jakarta.
The plane disappeared on Sunday carrying 162 people. Officials say that the pilots requested a change in course due to bad weather but then disappeared without a distress call.
A spokesman for the Indonesian air force says that they have spotted an oil slick but they have not confirmed that is the location of the downed plane.
We are very devastated by what’s happened, it’s unbelievable,” AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes said.
