in a blink
a tragedy struck
cries of a thousand deaths
of men, and hopes perished
a little girl of two
succumb to unimaginable misfortune

for a moment
silence fills the air
and the gush of wind
and the morning dew
and the rain comes drizzling

the life we ponder
the fragility of us
in facing a moment
of harsh reality

AirAsia flight went missing during flight from Surabaya to Singapore

JAKARTA: An AirAsia Indonesia plane en route for Singapore went missing with 162 people on board. After more than 24 hours of its disappearance, experts believed the plane is likely to be at the bottom of the sea, in the area of Belitung Timur.

Flight QZ8501, that took off from Surabaya’s Juanda International Airport to Singapore’s Changi Airport went off flight radar 42 minutes into its journey. The Airbus A320-200 was flying in Indonesian airspace when it went missing, about 200 nautical miles south-east of the Singapore-Jakarta flight information region boundary. One Malaysian was among 155 passengers confirmed, comprising 149 Indonesians, three South Koreans, and one each from Singapore and Britain.

The aircraft was supposed to have landed at Singapore’s Changi Airport at 8.30am on 28th December 2014, Sunday. The pilot had asked for a new route minutes before he went off the radio, air traffic control said. Indonesian air traffic control lost contact with the Airbus A320-200 aircraft at 6.24 am (Western Indonesian time, an hour behind Singapore time) as it was flying with 155 passengers and seven crew members on board yesterday.

The plane was flying at 32,000 feet (9,753m) and had requested for a slight change in its flight path by “flying to the left and at 38,000 feet (11,583m) to avoid clouds”. – The Star Online
