Dozens are injured and 1 is in critical condition after a budget flight Lion Air Boeing 787 missed the run way and landed instead on sea, breaking its fuselage into two.
Lion Air flight JT-960 was carrying 101 passengers and 7 crew members, when it tried to land on the runway of the Bali Airport on Saturday (April 13, 2013) in Indonesia. Experts said that the plane was flying 100 feet below the flight path when trying to land and in a high speed that resulted to the crash.
Lion Air is banned to fly into the US and Europe over safety problem. But it bought passenger jets in bulk for their fleet. The one that crashed on Saturday was delivered to the Lion Air only on March and it had just few flights before the incident happened.
Investigators are still finding the real cause of the crash. Black Box was already recovered by authorities and hoped that it will help them find the cause.
Experts think that it was the wind caused the crash considering that as the plane was about to land, it was under the heavy rains.
The pilot and his co-pilot underwent a drug test. They passed the initial drug test through urine test but the result of the hair test for possible use of drug is not yet released. It has been noted that since 2011, 11 pilots and co-pilots were arrested over the use of the illegal drug.
The wreck of the plane will be airlifted and will be kept for further investigation.
