Tuesday Morning Update: QZ8501, It Crashed. Convincing Evidence.

Indonesian officials say items resembling an emergency slide, plane door and other objects have been seen in the search for missing AirAsia flight QZ8501, news agency Agence France-Presse reports.

“We spotted about 10 big objects and many more small white-coloured objects which we could not photograph,” Indonesian air force official Agus Dwi Putranto told a press conference. “The position is 10 kilometres from the location the plane was last captured by radar,” he said.

He displayed 10 photos of objects resembling a plane door, emergency slide, and a square box-like object. An AFP photographer on the same flight that spotted the debris said he had seen objects in the sea resembling a life raft, life jackets and long orange tubes.

This marks the third tragedy to affect Asia airliners this year.
