An Indonesian passenger plane carrying 102 people disappeared in stormy weather Monday and rescue teams were immediately deployed to the area where military aviation officials feared the Boeing 737 may have crashed. Transport Minister Hatta Radjasa said the first distress signal was picked up over Sulawesi, one of the largest islands in the Indonesian archipelago, about 750 kilometers (470 miles) from the Adam Air flight's destination. The second was detected over Majene, a coastal city 150 kilometers (95 miles) to the west, another aviation official said, adding to confusion as to whether it disappeared over land or sea.
