According to the Associated Press, the AirAsia Zest jet landed in windy weather, and after overshooting the runway and getting stuck in the mud, the flight crew deployed emergency slides to help the passengers exit the plane safely. This latest AirAsia Zest accident occurred in Kalibo and happened before dark, according to Giovanni Hontomin, the man in charge of AirAsia Zest’s operations. Three of the plane’s tires were stuck in the mud, according to Eric Apolonio, the spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

Meanwhile, the news of the AirAsia Zest plane skidding off the runway pales in comparison to the tragic updates from the AirAsia plane that plummeted into the sea during bad weather on Sunday with 162 souls aboard. Reports of family members collapsing in grief as photos of dead bodies from AirAsia Flight 8501 flashed on Indonesian TV stations were chronicled by the Associated Press.

With back-to-back news reports involving AirAsia planes, readers are turning to reports about dire warnings that may have predicted the disaster, reports the Inquisitr. The publication points to rambling postings on Chinese forums that may have previously warned AirAsia passengers about impending doom – but also states that the forum postings may have been amended to include the most recent AirAsia disaster after the crash occurred.

In the wake of the AirAsia plane crash, other prediction and prophecy videos have grown popular on YouTube, such as the one titled AirAsia Plane Crash PROPHECY – T.B. Joshua, which has more than 50,000 views in the last 48 hours. The CEO of AirAsia – Tony Fernandes – has said he was “devastated” to learn the news about the plane’s crash into the sea being confirmed as experts focus on the weather conditions at the time of the crash, as well as the pilot’s request to increase altitude that was denied 36 minutes after takeoff.
