May not be true, but this report states that due to land at 0720 and lost contact with ATC at 0750.

According to flight radar (the link is in the above comments - Canít post links yet), The 737 seems to not be climbing, seems to fluctuate from 5000 to 4000 then at 3000 before it disappears. Wondering if there was a stall. Maybe the pitot covers were left on?

Comparison of the flight the day before. Note the Different Aircraft registrations.
Top Graph 28/10/2018 B738M PK-LQP
Bottom Graph 27/10/2018 B738 PK-LPQ

Looks like a significant upset very shortly after take-off.
Altitude dropped around the 2 minute mark with a subsequent increase in air speed.

The Pilots appear to be struggling to maintain a steady altitude for the whole 10 minutes of the flight.

I'm in Indonesia, watching TV. The flight was full, 737-8. Crashed into ocean 13 minutes after departure. Weather is fine and sunny at the scene..

Reported Problems

Pilots reportedly informed ATC they were having technical problems and requested to return to the airport.

Looking at the data for Flight Radar looks like it either a major mechanical failure or a miss managed one.
