Pardon my ignorance, but if all that is seen is debris - where is the plane? Sunken? Exploded?

More than likely disintegrated. The sad part is, this type of accident normally dont leave any survivors.  :(

 

Hope the authority investigate this accident thoroughly and make amends to prevent this kind of accident from happening again.

The authorities need to do something with Lion Air. Highest incident and accident recorded in Indonesia.

I hope their management and operations have nothing to do with Malindo?

Malindo is overseen by DCA/Mavcom - so they have to comply with Malaysian civil aviation regulations.

 

However, their aircraft is owned by the parent company - I am not sure what kind of maintenance arrangements they have. But it has been known that some Malindo aircraft do go for some work to be done at Batam.

I don't think this is a fair representation of Lion Air's record. Prior to this, their last fatal accident was in 2004. And all of their incidents are fairly common occurrence among airlines all over the world, including here in Malaysia.

I think it's more to do with near misses and poor management. 

 

"However, it has struggled with issues of safety and poor management and was banned, along with other Indonesian airlines, from flying into European airspace until 2016.
 
Its first deadly accident in 2004 saw 26 people killed and more than 100 injured when a Lion Air plane skidded at an airport in the central Java city of Solo, with the airline blaming bad weather and strong tailwinds.
 
In 2013, a rookie pilot at the controls of a Lion Air plane undershot the runway and landed in the sea off Bali, splitting the plane in two and forcing passengers to swim to safety. Remarkably no one was killed in the accident.
 
Three years later, two Lion Air passenger planes clipped wings as they were about to take off from Jakarta’s main Soekarno-Hatta airport."

It is also premature to blame Lion Air in this case as the cause of the crash is still to be determined.

past four flights recorded similiar issue on the airspeed indicator, maybe there's some improvement opportunity in the service guidance. may it be Lion's aircraft service SOP, or Boeing technical service handbook.

Didn't they just have another minor accident?  One of their B737-900ER had just had its Winglet scraped through a lamp post?

Yes, but people should not get into a tizzy over it. These things happen all over the world and are quite normal. There isn't a need to sensationalise them. Lately, there were quite a number of ground collisions too - at first world airports involving first world airlines. Human beings operating equipment will always make human errors. Our hope is that these errors do not become serious and fatal and the aviation industry does it best to minimise them.
