Indonesia Air Asia flight QZ 8501 went missing over the Java Sea on December 28, 2014 at 6:17 in the morning. After the shock of MH370 going missing in the same region for almost a year, people started speculating the worst. Was this aircraft another MH370? Fortunately for the families and the first wreckage was found a few hours after the crash, and definite proof of the location of the aircraft remains on December 31. But the question people are asking is what happened to the A320? So far, it seems comparably similar to Air France Flight 447 en route from Rio de Janerio to Charles de Gaulle, a A330. These aircraft were both made by the same manufacturer. Both were lost in a Intertropical Convergence Zone. In addition both of them crashed at sea, wherein debris was floating about the point of last known contact. In fact, they also both stalled mid air and the cockpit was blasting with alarms. Weather played apart in both. In the case of Air France 447, the altitude sensing pitot tubes clogged creating a false environment for the pilots. Although we are not certain about the case of Air Asia, most are sure weather played apart in the crash of the airliner, though that may not have been the only factor. An Airworthiness Directive was issued December 10, 2014, stating how control of the aircraft could be lost mid-flight because of icing on the angle of attack probes in joint with the aircraft's stall protection features. With this new addition to the air crashes of 2014, new changes will have to be made in concurrence with the Airworthiness Directive to help ensure disasters similar to this aren't a common happening.
