Divers find ‘black box’ from crashed Indonesian Lion Air jet

Indonesia's search and rescue chief today said divers reported seeing the fuselage and engines of the crashed Lion Air jet on the seafloor.

"I'm sure the total will increase", Mr Syaugi said, adding remains were also now washing up on land.

The Lion Air Flight Data Recorder (FDR) was located on Thursday, but investigators told media that they have not yet been able to extract any information from it.

There were almost 40 fatal aviation accidents in Indonesia over the past 15 years, according to the Aviation Safety Network, including a 1997 crash that killed 234 people, the country's deadliest plane accident.

The Lion Air plane with 189 people aboard that crashed on Monday into sea off western Indonesia has been crushed into pieces from severe impact with sea surface, Indonesian authorities said Tuesday. Investigators have said it was damaged and requires special handling to retrieve its data.

If there is a problem with the new Boeing 737-MAX 8 jets, that will have implications for flyers around the world, including Australia.

The pilot made an emergency " Pan-Pan" call signaling technical problems with the aircraft requesting to return to the airport.

Data from flight-tracking websites show both flights had highly erratic speed and altitude after takeoff, though confirmation is required from data recorded by the aircraft's "black box" flight recorders.

Muhammad Syaugi, head of the agency which is also known as Basarnas, told reporters at the port of Jakarta that divers had detected a characteristic "ping" sound from the second black box, Efe news reported.

The 11 Boeing 737 MAX planes comprise one operated by Garuda Indonesia and 10 operated by Lion Air, he said.

The shattering of the black box is unusual according to experts from US National Transportation Safety Board, since the devices are "built to withstand high-impact crashes".

Earlier it was revealed that Lion Air dispatched one of its engineers on the fatal flight that crashed Monday. The U.S. lifted a decadelong ban in 2016. The plane crashed 13 minutes into its journey on Monday, killing 189 people that were on board.
