Pieces of missing airplane found in Indonesia

The propeller of an Indonesia navy airplane is pictured in bad weather during a search the missing plane in Indonesia's Sulawesi island Jan. 3, 2007.An Indonesian Adam Air missing airplane of Boeing 737-400 has been found after 10 days searching, declared Indonesia's air force Thursday morning.

The tail horizontal stabilizer of the plane has been found by a local farmer at a beach eight km south of Pare-pare, Southern Sulaweisi.  

"This morning I announced that there has been a finding of a part of Adam Air. What was found was the left tail's stabilizer number 65C25746-76. This thing was found by a fisherman in Pare Pare," Eddy Suyanto, the air base commander in Makassar said. 
No survivors or bodies have been recovered, Suyanto said.

On Wednesday, a U.S. Navy oceanographic survey ship was trying to determine whether large pieces of metal found in a separate discovery off Sulawesi's western coast were also wreckage from the plane.

An Indonesian vessel recently found the three pieces of debris on the Makassar Strait seabed after local fisherman told authorities they had spotted a low-flying, unstable aircraft in the area but lost sight of it after hearing a loud bang, naval officials said.

The USNS Mary Sears, which has sonar and satellite imagery capabilities, was called in to see if the metal could be the remnants of Adam Air Flight KI-574, which fell off radars in the area during 80 mph winds on New Year's day, Suyanto said on Wednesday. 

The Adam Air Boeing 737-400 jetliner went missing with 102 people on board on Jan. 1 on a flight from Surabaya to Manado.
