SURABAYA, Indonesia (AP) - Indonesia's air force says oil samples from the Java Sea will be collected and analyzed to see if they're connected to the missing AirAsia jetliner.

The oily spots were found by an Indonesian helicopter searching for AirAsia Flight 8501, which had 162 people on board when it lost contact yesterday morning while flying from Indonesia to Singapore.

And an Australian plane has spotted a "suspicious" object in the Java Sea, about 700 miles from where the AirAsia plane lost contact.
