3. From what I read here and there, there is (?) a procedure of 75% N1 throttles or something like that, when malfunctioning speed sensors or loss of references. If it exists and is valid even for reduced altitude like 5000ft - which means the possible/risk of some slight initial nose down is consi...

RE: Air Asia QZ8501 SUB To SIN Crash - Part 13

Clarification: It's only the Indonesian military that halted their involvement in the recovery efforts. The Indonesian SAR agency will carry on with their efforts, but they won't be able to use equipments owned by the Indonesian military (ships, planes): <a href="http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/...

A small update: a fisherman found what appears to be the nose of the aircraft in the waters around Sembilan Island, 650km from the crash site and not too far from the area where three bodies were recently found.

Apparent fact: some (if not most) of these bodies were still clothed when found...
