As the search for Air Asia flight 8501 enters its second day, Singaporean officials are speculating that the aircraft probably crashed into the ocean.
Although no conclusive evidence has been put forward to back this speculation, search operations on focusing their search on the sea.
The AirAsia flight 8501 departed Indonesia and was bound for Singapore when the pilot decided to alter his course because of some bad weather.
After ascending to about 38,000 feet, the aircraft disappeared from the radar and lost contact with the radio tower.
Much of the route from Indonesia to Singapore is directly over the sea hence the general belief that the aircraft is probably at the bottom of the sea.
Search operations remain ongoing while officials are in hope of finding the remains of the aircraft.
