Eaglepointmhp – The search and rescue operation for Sriwijaya Air SJ 182 aircraft by Basarnas was officially declared on 21 January 2021. The next task in connection with the investigation was carried out by the NTSC, namely to continue the search for CVR memory material to investigate the cause of the crash of the Sriwijaya plane in the waters of the Thousand Islands. We hope that the results of these investigations will be followed up by efforts to minimize any risks to aviation safety, in order to create an accident situation for every stakeholder in air transport.
What can be guaranteed to measure is the implementation of standard procedures, but guarantees for flight safety cannot be established. For example, a Malaysia Airlines flight MH 17 on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on July 17 while flying over northern Ukraine was shot down by a pro-Russian separatist group with a superficial missile. Therefore, every flight disaster will also make service users or passengers aware that there will always be risks related to flight safety.
My first experience as a passenger on a military plane was on a Hercules C-130 TNI AU while I was on duty in East Timor. Each route to Dili is usually served by Air Force Hercules aircraft with a view to shifting personnel and logistics from the East Timor Operations Command (Kolakops). As with a city bus, I was constantly on flights from Dili to Malang. The limited flight frequency is best used by people who give permission to return to Java and always keep “Herky” passengers to and from Dili.
Three months before the vote that changed the status of East Timor into an independent state, I left Bumi Timor Lorosae. This time not with an air force plane, but aboard the PT Pelni KM Dobonsolo ship. From that time until 2013, I never took a Hercules C-130 aircraft again. Only in 2014, when I was commissioned to participate in the TNI PPRC Command Post rehearsal training in the 1st Infantry Division of Kostrad Cilodong Depok, was I able to board the Indonesian Air Force Hercules aircraft again. There is something similar to what I experienced from 1995 to 1999, namely when I imagined the fall of the Hecules C-130 in 1991. This accident killed 135 Indonesian Air Force soldiers after attending the TNI Jubilee Parade.
After being appointed outside Java in 2001-2003 as a Navy and Enrolled Navy Candidate Selection Team (acting), I could feel like I was driving a fixed-wing Nomad TNI AL. Unlike the Indonesian Air Force Hercules, which is large and can carry hundreds of paratroopers during air strikes, the Indonesian Navy’s Nomad aircraft delivered by the conservation team is only 12.5 m long and can carry a maximum of 14 passengers. The little nomad made me stagger in the air and realize how small and big people are in the wide view of the universe. In the Asia-Pacific region, only Nomads can fly low to closely monitor objects.
Nomadic aircraft manufactured by the Australian Government Aircraft Factories (GAF) began to strengthen the Indonesian navy and joined the 800 Squadron established in July 1976. The Indonesian navy uses Nomad aircraft types N22 and N24, with the addition of a number of aircraft arriving. in 1993 and 1995. for the past two years were former nomads in the Australian Air Force and Army. Gradually, the Indonesian navy began to reduce the operations of Nomad aircraft, after the crash of Nomad aircraft several times and NC-212 was chosen as a replacement. In 2007, the Indonesian Navy received the delivery of the NC-212 aircraft from the three types of maritime patrols as a fulfillment of the contract between PT DI and the Indonesian Ministry of Defense since 1996.
