AirAsia: Plane was at a speed of military jet
The cause of AirAsia recent crash into Java Sea in which 162 Passengers of the airlines lost their lives has been attributed to the plane pilot "climbed too fast." Ignasius Jonan, Indonesia's Minister of Transportation made this disclosure in Jakarta during a parliamentary hearing on the crash. He stated further that only military jet could survive what the commercial flight attempted. Aircraft experts are in doubt of this line of cause as they claimed commercial planes are unlikely to physically attain the ascension speed of 1,828m per minute claimed the flight made by the Minister.
