Stormy weather on Wednesday grounded Indonesian planes and helicopters seeking to recover more bodies in the AirAsia plane crash.
Officials were forced to suspend aerial missions as heavy rain and low visibility made it difficult to recover bodies four days after the Airbus A320-200 disappeared from the radar en route from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore, Reuters news agency reported.
“I went to the search area this morning and saw there was no way we could do a search,” said Dwi Putranto, a senior air force official.
“Now we are standing by in case remains can be evacuated," he said, adding that over 100 divers and rescue workers were "ready to search."
