AirAsia QZ 8501: Singapore ship finds missing items including suitcase
Singapore's RSS Valour has recovered several items belonging to passengers from AirAsia Flight QZ 8501 on Friday morning (Jan 2).
Items recovered during the Search and Rescue (SAR) operations include one black suitcase, a gas tube and some debris from the aircraft, according to kompas.com
The items were transported to naval vessel KRI Banda Aceh by a speed boat.
The recovered items have not been taken to Pangkalan Bun yet as Indonesian President Joko Widodo has told the joint SAR team to focus on retrieving the bodies of the passengers.
Another Singapore ship, RSS Supreme, has recovered what could possibly be the plane's window panel.
