AirAsia Missing Plane: Queens Park Rangers Owner Faces Another Woe.


Queens Park Rangers lost to Arsenal on Boxing Day which meant they left the Emirates Stadium the same way they came. That was not a cool way to celebrate the Christmas season.

As if that was not enough woe for their owner, Tony Fernandes, he has just been hit with another mysterious happening.

AirAsia aircraft, flight No. QZ8501 with 162 passengers on board is nowhere to be found. Of the passengers, 156 were Indonesians, three were South Korean, and there was one traveler each from Malaysia and Singapore and France according to AirAsia. According to a tweet from Malaysia-based AirAsia, the aircraft got lost at 07:24 (23:24 GMT).

Travelling from Indonesia to Singapore, it lost contact with the air traffic control. The airline belongs to Queens Park Rangers owner, Tony Fernandes.

It departed the Indonesian city of Surabaya in Eastern Java at 05:20 local time (21:20 GMT) and was due to arrive in Singapore at 08:30 (00:30 GMT). One hour to its time of landing, it disappeared. Poor weather conditions was the reason given for this disastrous occurrence.

The Indonesian Aviation Ministry revealed that the pilot requested permission to climb to 38,000 ft (11,000m) so as to avoid the clouds. However no emergency call was made by the crew at any point during the trip.

A serious search by some Indonesian military planes is currently on in the Java Sea region.

This is the first time AirAsia will lose a plane but Malaysia Airlines has suffered two of such incidents in 2014 alone with flights MH370 and MH17.

A safe return is all we pray for as the families of those on board are already trooping in to the airport, hoping to get positive news. Our thoughts are with them all.
