The plane is not a 737 Max, the Boeing model involved in two major crashes in recent years.

Your title is wrong

There are feared to be 62 people on the 26-year-old plane, including 56 passengers - seven of whom are children and three are babies - as well as two pilots and four cabin crew.


....just devastating...those lives lost and the lives of families/loved ones completely shattered...

I read this morning that another Aircraft crashed last year not far from where this one came down. Apparently of the two pilots, one had not flown at all for many months and the other only 4 times over a few months due to the virus and reduction of flights..

Indonesia has a dreadful aircraft safety record over the years to the point they were banned from America and Europe. That ban was lifted in 2018, but the pandemic has probably driven their safety back down again with the lack of money around
