Indonesian officials have confirmed at least 40 bodies have been found in the ongoing search for missing AirAsia Indonesia flight QZ8501. Many have been recovered from the scene, with debris also sighted. The bodies were spotted in the Java Sea off the Indonesian part of Borneo.
A widening search for missing AirAsia Indonesia flight QZ8501 is unlikely to locate survivors, with the head of the Indonesian rescue efforts suggesting the aircraft was likely at the bottom of the ocean. Bambang Soelistyo revealed his hypothesis based on the co-ordinates of the Airbus A320-200 when contact with it was lost.
