Since the disappearance, there has been a lot of speculation on what happened during the plane’s flight. The last communication known with air traffic controllers and pilots was a request to climb to avoid bad weather. The air traffic controllers rejected this request. Shortly after, the plane disappeared.

Air Asia said earlier this week that 48 bodies have been found in the Java Sea, with 34 identified. The wreckage of Airbus A320-200 Airbus A320-200 is also still being removed.

Investigators will be very interested in the information that records from the flight recorders and the cockpit voice recorder will show. Their recovery was crucial.

Up to now, the information from the investigation suggested different scenarios that could have resulted in the loss of the plane as well as the crew, passengers, and passengers. Certain theories seemed better than others. However, no one was supported by convincing evidence.

The data analysis process begins.

If the recorders have not been damaged, they should take only several days or less to allow the data to be taken from the writers and analyzed.

Computer modeling software can make use of the recorded data to give real-time computer-generated video images of what transpired. The video will detail every detail through the final phases that took place during the flight, as well as readings of the various flight instruments and motions of the flight control system that are synchronized with the information in the cockpit. Investigators will have a precise picture of what occurred.

The analysis of the wreckage after it’s been recovered from the ocean floor could aid in understanding the circumstances. The location of the waste can indicate the extent of any flight break-up or separation of any critical flight components or if the aircraft made it to the surface intact. Analyzing any structural issues or other damage could assist in determining the cause of what transpired.

The investigation should concentrate on obtaining reasons why the incident occurred. However, this might not be as simple as it seems.

Let’s say that the plane was in a state of icing – as was theorized and ice growth caused a negative impact on the pressure detection capabilities of the pitot heads that are used to gauge the speed of air.

If this were the situation, the ice would have disintegrated long before investigators got the chance to examine the systems that were found in the wreckage. Thus, the investigators have taken care to scrutinize the flight recorder’s data to look for any deviations in the crucial systems that receive signals from pitot heads, which could be similar to what would be expected in the event that icing of pitot heads had taken place. The issue of icing could also become more prominent when there is no other issue, or conflicting evidence is discovered.

This is, of course, only one of the many possible causal scenarios that the existing evidence confirms. An analysis of the evidence that investigators have access to could reveal something completely different.

Concerns about passenger flight safety?

The accident caused by Air Asia flight QZ8501 comes following a tough year for the airline passenger industry.

The search continues to find the disappearance of Malaysia flight number MH370. The plane left Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia on March 8, 2014, and was headed toward Beijing. However, the search efforts are currently focusing on deep waters close to the coastline of Western Australia.

How Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777 with 239 passengers and crew the plane went down remains an unanswered question.

Then, July 17, 2014, was the day of the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which just minutes before took off from Amsterdam airport, with 283 travelers and 15 staff members on the plane headed for Kuala Lumpur airport in Malaysia. The evidence from the wreckage suggests that a missile hit the Boeing 777 aircraft while it was flying through troubled regions located in Ukraine.
