AirAsia Plane Climbed Too Fast

The AirAsia plane that crashed last month killing all 162 people on board was climbing at an abnormally high rate, then plunged … disappearing suddenly from radar.

That’s the word from Indonesian authorities on Tuesday. The country’s Transport Minister told Parliament that radar data showed the Airbus A320 was climbing at about 6,000 feet a minute before it disappeared on Dec. 28. What caused the plane to climb so rapidly has yet to be revealed. The plane’s black boxes have been recovered but are still being analyzed.
