MISSING AIRASIA QZ8501 PLANE - Last words of vanished plane's pilot revealed

Missing AirAsia flight QZ8501: Last words of vanished plane's pilot revealed

Captain Iriyanto is said to have uttered the phrase "request to higher level" as he sought permission from air traffic control to take the aircraft to 38,000 feet

The last words of Flight QZ8501's pilot have been revealed.
Captain Iriyanto is said to have asked Indonesian state navigation operator AirNav for permission to turn left to avoid a storm.
His request was granted and the jet turned left seven miles.
According to AirNav standards and safety director Wisnu Darjono, the captain then asked if he could climb, saying: "Request to higher level."
The air traffic controller responded: "Intended to what level?", to which Iriyanto said he wanted to go to 38,000 feet.
It was the last AirNav heard from the pilot.
Ships and aircraft from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia are scouring the Java Sea for any trace of the AirAsia plane, which disappeared on Saturday with 162 people on board.
Weather conditions were poor in the Java Sea when the aircraft disappeared.
Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency chief, Bambang Soelistyo, said: "Based on the coordinates given to us and evaluation that the estimated crash position is in the sea, the hypothesis is the plane is at the bottom of the sea.
"That's the preliminary suspicion and it can develop based on the evaluation of the result of our search."
Jusuf Kalla added: "The government is concerned and expresses its deepest condolences to the families of victims."
