Sinopsis

Pada tanggal 1 Januari 2007, pesawat boeing 737-4Q8 yang dioperasikan Adam Air dengan nomor penerbangan DHI 574, yang bertolak dari Surabaya menuju Manado tiba- tiba menghilang dari pantauan radar.

Pesawat berangkat dari bandara Djuanda, Surabaya pada pukul 05.59 dengan perkiraan waktu kedatangan 08.14 di bandara Sam Ratulangi, Manado. Terdapat 102 orang dalam pesawat meliputi; 2 pilot, 4 awak kabin, dan 96 penumpang yang terdiri dari; 85 orang dewasa, 7 anak-anak, dan 4 bayi.

Setelah 9 hari mencari, ditemukan tanda-tanda bahwa pesawat terjun ke dasar laut, setelah black box terdeteksi di kedalaman laut 2000 meter sekitar perairan Majene, Selat Makassar. Kemudian dipastikan bahwa pesawat hancur di palung laut perairan tersebut, dan semua penumpang hilang atau tewas.

Karya ini untuk mengenang para korban dan salam hormat saya untuk semua keluarga korban.

 

On January 1, 2007, the 737-4Q8 Boeing aircraft operated by Adam Air with flight number DHI 574, which was on a flight from Surabaya, East Java to Manado, North Sulawesi suddenly disappeared from radar monitoring. The plane departed from Djuanda airport, Surabaya, at 05.59 am, with an estimated arrival time at 08.14, at Sam Ratulangi airport, Manado. In total there were 102 people on board; 2 pilots, 4 cabin crews, and 96 passengers consisting of; 85 adults, 7 children and 4 babies.

After 9 days of search, they found signs of the plane plunged into the seabed, after the Black Box of that plane was detected in the sea depth of 2000 meters in the vicinity of the waters of Majene, Makassar Strait. A couple of days afterwards, it was confirmed that the plane was destroyed in the depths of the trough of the sea, and all passengers were lost or killed.

This work is a commemoration of the victims and respect to all the family of victims.
