Earlier today, Lion Air flight 610 crashed in the Java Sea about 12 minutes after taking off from Jakarta. The flight had reportedly requested clearance to return to Jakarta. 181 passengers (including two babies and an infant) and seven crew were aboard the aircraft which was operating a scheduled flight to Pangkal Pinang. The accident aircraft, registered PK-LQP, was a Boeing 737 MAX 8 that had been delivered in August. This was the first loss of a 737 MAX.
Today's Featured Map shows the path of JT 610 in red, along with the direct path to the destination (in grey) starting from where the flight first sustained a significant loss in altitude according to ADS-B data.
