I've been following news reports on the Lion Air crash shortly after takeoff from Jakarta earlier today. Those reports mention 189 people on board including two foreign nationals.

hey, very tragic incident, especially considering the plane was only 2 months old, and that lion air was trying to rebuild confidence in the company...

Yes tragic. A friend of a friend was on the flight, bringing the tragedy that much closer to home sadly.

Investigations are ongoing, with initial thoughts pointing towards a maintenance issue, which sadly would not be surprising given the carrier.

Will be writing about safety in Indonesia in today’s newsletter.
