A Boeing 737 belonging to Sriwijaya Air with 62 people onboard is missing and believed to have crashed into the sea shortly after departing the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta.

According to various sources, the aircraft disappeared from radar around four minutes into the flight from Jakarta to Pontianak in West Kalimantan province.   Flightradar24.com indicates the jet dropped more than 3,000m (10,000ft) in less than a minute and according to the BBC witnesses 'said they had seen and heard at least one explosion'.

The last contact with the jet was made at 14:40 local time according to the transport ministry who also advised that a rescue mission was already underway.
