Missing AirAsia flight Spotted at The Java Sea Closest to Indonesia

The search for missing AirAsia Flight 8501 may have received a boost Monday after an Indonesian official said that Australian planes had spotted objects in the Java Sea search area.
Jakarta’s Air Force base commander Rear Marshal Dwi Putranto told the Associated Press that he was informed Monday that an Orion aircraft had detected “suspicious” objects near Nangka island, about 100 miles southwest of Pangkalan Bun, near central Kalimantan, or 700 miles from the location where the plane lost contact with air traffic controllers early Sunday.
