The Adam Air flight that went missing over Indonesia with more than 100 passengers onboard probably crashed, a military airport official said Monday. Rescue teams were searching for the Boeing 737-400 aircraft that sent out a distress signal flying in bad weather between the islands of Java and Sulawesi. Eddy Suyanto, military airport chief in South Sulawesi, said the type of signal sent by the plane before it went missing indicated "a big chance it had an accident or a crash." Transport Minister Hatta Radjasa said a radio communication was picked up over central Sulawesi and emergency crews were on their way to search for survivors.
