  4. Why they fly non-functional aircraft? then this happens for sure. Every Aircraft need to be maintained before a flight in a very careful way, then no plane-crash will happen.

  12. Why it this airline company still allowed to operate, they've crashed multiple planes before and I can bet that why lion air is such a budget airline is that they skimp out on maintenance

  15. Al jazeera's documentary on 787 brings to my mind!

  16. more should be reported in international news on how much hindu radicals are undermining the multicultural communal harmony affecting 1.3 billion people in india .. example, the radical hindu so-called nationalists changed name of a city 'allahabad' to 'pragyaraj' and the corrupt india media called 'times-now' spreads fake news that 'hindus are under siege in india' on behalf of hindu radicals further proved by cobrapost news sting operation .. earlier, anyone could become president based on merit as in dr.abdulkalam, dr.manmohan, mr.vajpayee from any religion, but now the country is becoming more and more polarized

  17. 0:51 i love the symbol of the BPBD / Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management. Orange and blue.

    Anyway, how can you crash a plane to the sea anyway? No fuel? lol. Man, i hope those people are good swimmers because the longer you don't exit the airplane, you're going to the bottom of the sea.

  18. Heart breaking….. it’s like one of my worst fears. And to think, it was mentioned that this was a very new aircraft. Acquired last August…..
