Airline Still Not Sure Who Was Killed In The Garuda Crash-Landing

The saga of the Garuda Boeing 737-400 which crash-landed at Adisucipto Airport, Yogyakarta, yesterday, March 7th continues as officials attempted to identify the bodies of the victims, many of which are burnt beyond recognition. Garuda Airlines admitted that only nine of the dead had been identified.

Some of the bodies are of passengers who were frequent flyers with the airline, but forensic experts are having an extremely difficult time trying to establish their identities, due to the extent of their burns. Some are charred beyond recognition.

No official explanation for the air crash which killed between 23 and 49 passengers, (official figures differ) has yet been put forward, but some members of the Australian Air Force, who were aboard, are convinced the plane was travelling too fast to cope with the notoriously short runway.

Air travel investigators are still examining all the evidence in the crash, including some from Australia, as members of Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s support party were among the passengers, five of whom are dead and some still remain unaccounted for. The pilot and co-pilot who both survived the crash are not in a sufficiently lucid state to describe what happened in the incident.

However, the preliminary findings point towards human error, a conclusion reached by Indonesian national police spokesman, Mr. Sisno Adiwinoto.

This conclusion is also supported by the Head of Aviation Safety Foundation of Australia, Gary Lawson-Smith, who said that human error was a major factor in aviation incidents.

Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the Indonesian President, concerned with the impact upon Indonesia, has ordered his chief security minister to probe the accident. No early signs of terrorism or sabotage have been discovered, a fact that has been endorsed by both Indonesian and Australian officials.
