AirAsia plane climbed at speed 'beyond normal' then stalled: minister
[JAKARTA] An AirAsia plane that crashed into the Java Sea last month with 162 people on board climbed at a speed that was "beyond normal" and then stalled, the Indonesian transport minister said on Tuesday.
"In the final minutes, the plane climbed at a speed which was beyond normal," said Transport Minister Ignasius Jonan, citing radar data.
"The plane suddenly went up at a speed above the normal limit that it was able to climb to. Then it stalled."
