Four teams have been deployed in search of the wreckage and victims of Sukhoi Superjet 100 that crashed into a cliff of Mount Salak at a height of 5,500 feet last Wednesday 9th, 2012.  The four teams consist of armed forces, Search and Rescue teams, some members of Indonesian Red Cross are starting the search this morning. The area where the wreckage is has been indentified but the routes to get there is very difficult as some tracks are blocked by ravine.
Six army helicopters were also reported to have tried to deploy teams but found it difficult as the bottom of the valley is covered with fogs. Nothing can be seen clearly but fog. At this time the search for the wreckage of Sukhoi Superjet 100 and 47 victims is being focused on rescue by land.


Meanwhile family members of the victims gather at Halim Perdanakusuma International Airports in Jakarta to wait and supply the victims’ personal data just in case the worse possibility turns up. President of The Republic of Indonesia, SBY and his wife, are also seen at the airport to express his condolences, support and lighten the burden of grief overwhelming the family members of the victim.

It is hoped that some of the victims can be evacuated today. With 4(four) teams already deployed we are sure that targeted evacuation can be accomplished. The SAR team members are reported to have climbed down the cliff toward the the wreckage of Sukhoi Superjet 100 to find the victims. The third and fourth team has started marching into the location to replace the second one that entered the difficult area yesterday. We are relying on the hard work of all deployed teams to do the best they can.

Russian team has already arrived in Jakarta to investigate the cause of the Sukhoi plane crash. They are to be in Jakarta till they have the result of the investigation.
