epa04546441 Indonesian divers prepare their equipment aboard the Indonesian National Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) ship ‘KN Purworejo’ during a search operation for the crashed AirAsia plane in Pangkalan Bun, Central Borneo, Indonesia, on 04 January 2015. Zero visibility prevented Indonesian Navy divers 04 January from reaching large objects believed to be parts of an AirAsia plane that crashed 28 December 2014 between Surabay and Singapore with 162 people aboard, the search chief said. Ships equipped with sonar technology on 03 January had detected four large objects they hoped were parts of AirAsia’s Airbus A320-200 fuselage. High waves and strong winds in the past few days had prevented divers equipped with cameras and sonar devices from scouring the sea floor to find more debris and bodies. EPA/BAGUS INDAHONO
