Sukhoi Superjet 100 accident
Two of the 47 passengers aboard Sukhoi Superjet 100, which crashed into a cliff of Mount Salak were Trans TV's cameraman and journalist who were assigned to cover the news of a demo flight of Russia-made Sukhoi Superjet 100. 

Two of Sukhoi Superjet 100 victims are Trans TV employees: Ismiati Soenarto worked as a journalist, while another one a Trans TV cameraman Adit who was said to be a responsible and reliable person. Adit’s body was found by SAR team yesterday but Ismi Soenarto might be still missing or be one of the pieces of bodies, which are still being identified at the hospital.

Ismi had never been on a plane. Sukhoi Superjet 100 plane was her first flight. She was assigned to cover Joyflight of Sukhoi Superjet 100, which turned out to be a tragedy. The idea of assigning Ismi was first of all Ismi was never on a flight. Secondly, Ismi was in the spirit of enthusiasm as a journalist. As of now, Ismi’s parents are still waiting for a miracle for their beloved daughter.

According to Rani, Ismi’s friend, when she got the invitation from PT Trimarga Rekatama to join the Sukhoi flight, she was very excited as this would be her first flight experience.

Ismi was also known as a figure who liked smiling and greeting her neighbors when she met them on the street.
 Besides that, Ismi, who was born on December 22nd, 1988, was only twice on a tour of duty during her tenure at Trans TV News Division. “When we gathered the night before, Ismi showed us the invitation to join the flight. She looked very happy,” said Rani.

Trans TV coverage crew was shocked at what has happened to two Trans TV members--Aditya Sukardy or usually called Adit and Ismi Soenarto. Adit was known to be a responsible figure who had made a lot of achievements in his job. He was firm in his decision. “He was very responsible in his task,” said Dito, Adit’s co worker. In carrying out his job as a cameraman, Adit always prioritized the safety of his fellow workers, and other people when Trans TV crew was covering the news. If the situations were adverse and dangerous, Adit asked his friends to back off, and he was on his own to come to the front.

Adit was not arrogant. He never showed off his skill. Instead, Adit, who had been with Trans TV since 2006, always guided his fellow workers in carrying out their coverage duties. According to Reni, Adit was assigned to cover the news of Sukhoi Superjet 100 because he had a very good record in taking good pictures. It was expected that he would come home with highly expected pictures of joyflight of Russia-made Sukhoi Superjet 100.  “Adit was a cameraman, whose shots were admired by all,” said Reni when she last met Adit when they were playing futsal at the office.

SAR team found Adit’s body  still in his complete Trans TV uniform and the body has been transferred to the hospital for further investigation
