Probe into Indonesia jet crash hampered Soldiers hunted on beaches and in the sea on Saturday for the black box from an Indonesian jetliner that crashed with 102 people aboard, but ocean depths of more than 1 1/2 kilometers (0.93 miles) were hampering the search. Experts said authorities had to find the box -- also know as a flight data recorder -- or significant pieces of wreckage such as the engines, cockpit and wings to determine what caused the Boeing 737 to crash.

The hunt for Adam Air flight 574 It was a fairly normal beginning of the new year, for as far the first day of the year can be a normal one. The sun was shining here and the weather looked good for the day. Maybe a little bit strange, since we are in the middle of the wet season here so in fact we have to expect a lot of rain almost every single day now. The weather is slightly strange since there is really bad weather of the Java Sea. From Southern Sumatra until as far east at the Moluccan Spice Islands the weather is bad; very high waves, strong winds and a lot of rain are pounding the area. At first you think that that is not a big deal there out at sea, at least there will be no victims in flash floods, landslides and other misery that comes with the wet season in Indonesia.

Fate of Adam Air plane carrying 102 remains mystery Adam Air Flight KI-574 took off on New Year's Day with 102 people.
