Wreckage From AirAsia Flight Found

Via the Los Angeles Times:
Searchers recovered bodies from the Java Sea on Tuesday and found what officials said wreckage from Indonesia AirAsia Flight 8501 as the three-day mystery over the plane's whereabouts reached a heartbreaking resolution for the families of 162 people aboard. “I am absolutely devastated,” Tony Fernandes, AirAsia's chief executive, said in a statement. “This is a very difficult moment for all of us at AirAsia as we await further developments of the search-and-rescue operations but our first priority now is the well-being of the family members of those on board QZ8501,” he said. AirAsia said debris belonging to its aircraft was found in the Karimata Strait -- between Singapore and Indonesia -- about 110 nautical miles southwest of Pangkalan Bun, on the southern edge of Borneo island.
At this writing about 40 bodies have been recovered.
