No survivors expected after Indonesia plane crash

If fears that all 189 people on-board the Lion Air flight are well-placed, it would make this the second most devastating plane crash in the history of Indonesia.The worst was in 1997, when 234 people were killed in an Airbus A-300B4 crash. The plane – operated by Garuda Indonesia – went down in a smog-shrouded ravine in North Sumatra.In 2014, an AirAsia plane plunged into the Java Sea during a storm, killing 162 people. It was flying from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore at the time.
And nine years prior, a Mandala Airlines domestic flight crashed shortly after take-off into a densely populated suburb in Medan. Passengers, crew and people on the ground made up the 150 people who died.
