Rescuers to search sea for Adam Air plane wreck MAKASSAR - Search teams will Wednesday scan the seas off the island of Sulawesi for a plane which went missing with 102 people on board, officials said after reports the wreckage had been found on the island proved false. The Adam Air plane with 96 passengers and six crew on board vanished from air traffic control radar screens Monday. The Boeing 737-400 had sent distress signals an hour after taking off from Java island en route to Sulawesi.

"Tomorrow (Wednesday) morning the search and rescue teams together with the police, military and the navy will begin to search the waters near the west Sulawesi area," Bambang Karnoyudho, head of the National Search and Rescue Board, told MetroTV Tuesday. He said the last signal detected by a Singapore satellite indicated the plane was in the water 30 kilometres northwest of Makassar, the capital of South Sulawesi province.

"We will focus our search in that area in the sea and we will try our best to find survivors," he said. The regional military commander said the wreckage had not been found, contradicting earlier reports the plane had crashed in west Sulawesi. Major General Arif Budi Sampurno told MetroTV that after checking the reported location they had not found any plane wreck.

"News from the village head reporting 12 survivors was also not true, the village head said that he never made that report," said Sampurno, whose area of command includes Sulawesi. Reports early Tuesday said the crash site had been identified from an aerial photograph and that local residents had reported finding bodies and survivors in the jungle of West Sulawesi. Search and rescue teams were dispatched to the area but found no sign of a plane wreck, Sampurno said.

"The local commander, the police chief and the governor went to the location and they found nothing, so earlier reports about the location, number of survivors are all untrue. We don't know where that information originates from," he told AFP. Search and rescue chief Karnoyudho was also uncertain how the confusion had happened.

"Well, the village head had told the local police chief, who had then relayed the message to the police chief in Makassar. He then told the national Search and Rescue Board spokesman Suyatno, who told the press," he said. "However when these people got to the site, there was no plane wreck." The missing jet was carrying 85 adult passengers, 11 children, including four babies, and six crew.

"There are three foreign citizens, all American from one family," Adam Air spokesman Ali told AFP, naming them as Scott Jackson and daughters Stephanie and Lindsay. The Adam Air plane took off Monday at 12:59 pm (0559 GMT) from Surabaya on Java bound for Manado in northeast Sulawesi. The Surabaya airport duty manager said there were no technical problems with the plane when it took off. Adam Air officials said the 17-year-old aircraft was last inspected on December 25.

Privately owned Adam Air began operations in 2003 and serves mainly domestic routes. Singapore and Malaysia's Penang are its only international destinations. The company is a leading low-cost carrier in the competitive Indonesian market, marketing itself as a "boutique airline" placed between traditional budget firms and regular airlines.

Ooh, now it seems they DIDN'T find it yet. The area is difficult terrain, but come on, if you don't know the difference between a whole plane (stille in one piece or not) and a bird dropping ...
