Relatives of victims of the Sriwijaya Air plane crash paid their final respects to their loved ones on Friday.

Families and friends of the victims of a Sriwijaya Air Flight 182 throw flowers into the Java Sea where the plane crashed on January 9 killing all of its passengers, during a memorial ceremony held on the deck of Indonesian Navy Ship KRI Semarang, near Jakarta in Indonesia, Friday, January 22.

Relatives of victims of the Sriwijaya Air plane crash paid their final respects to their loved ones on Friday.

The family members were taken to the site of the crash, just off the coast of the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, by an Indonesian naval ship, where they scattered flower petals into the sea and held prayers.

Indonesian authorities Thursday halted the search for victims of the crash but said the hunt would continue for the Sriwijaya Air jet’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR) in a bid to get more information on the final moments of the doomed flight.

The country’s air accident investigator is probing whether a problem with the auto throttle system, which controls engine power automatically, contributed to the Sriwijaya Air crash.
