Circumstances:
The aircraft departed Jakarta-Soekarno-Hatta Airport runway 25R at 1435LT on a flight to Pontianak. During initial climb, the crew initiated a right turn according to published procedures and continued climbing over the sea after being cleared to climb to FL290. At an altitude of 11,000 feet and at a speed of 284 knots, the aircraft entered an uncontrolled descent and crashed in the sea of Java about seven km offshore, some five minutes after takeoff. Few debris were found floating on water and the aircraft apparently disintegrated on impact. The accident was not survivable.
