A Sriwijaya Air 737 has lost contact with air traffic control after reportedly falling more than 10,000ft in one minute into the Java Sea, north of Jakarta.

Indonesia’s search and rescue agency has confirmed that the country’s aviation authorities have lost contact with 26-year-old aircraft, and a photo has emerged on Twitter apparently showing the debris.

    As it’s in the area where the Lion MAX Boeing 737 crashed, wonder if there’s interference coming from land installation, of some description?

    Odd that only that type of aircraft has been effected.
