The use of multi-national forensic recovery experts in the AIR ASIA incident

Note: The first lesson from this specific incident is: DON”T SHOW THE BODY RECOVERY IN FRONT OF THE MEDIA My mass disaster experience is similar with news copters hovering over the ocean recovery site until authorities established prohibited airspace for civilian aircraft.

Latest News of today, the tail of the aircraft has been recovered.  

Water search moves westward from origianl contact site.

More forensic dentists to help with AirAsia recovery.

Other forensic experts: Photography, crime scene investigators and recovery divers.

Identification experts.

Australians send help. 

Arm chair aviation experts talk about the plane “landing on the water” and then “breaking up” due to intact victims’ remains still in passenger seats. That is a bit premature, to say the least.
