Lion Air jet crash: Cockpit voice recorder found

Growing questions have been raised about the Lion Air plane’s previous flight

The device, one of two recorders on the jet, could offer insight into the final moments of the fatal flight as investigators search for clues about why the brand-new Boeing 737 Max 8 went down. A press conference is expected later Monday.

"It's been found, but we have not received information of the location yet", Haryo Satmiko, deputy chief of Indonesia's transport safety committee (KNKT), said by text message, according to Reuters.

Pilots flying the same plane a day earlier had experienced a similar problem en route from Denpasar, Bali, to Jakarta, the transportation safety committee said then.

The plane's previously discovered flight data recorder supplied information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane before it plunged into the sea on October 29.

But the cockpit voice recorder - which keeps track of conversations and other sounds in the pilots' cabin - will provide new details for investigators trying to find out why the brand new airliner fell out of the sky.

The cockpit data recorder was recovered within days and showed that the jet's airspeed indicator had malfunctioned on its last four flights.

Introduced in the late 1950s, black boxes help explain almost 90% of all crashes, according to aviation experts.

Rear Adm. Harjo Susmoro, head of the navy's Center for Hydrography and Oceanography, said the voice recorder was found just 50 meters (164 feet) from where the data recorder was located.

Susmoro said the voice recorder's signal, created to last 90 days following a crash, would have stopped after about 15 days.

Divers have found the second black box from a doomed Lion Air jet that crashed previous year killing all 189 people onboard, Indonesian authorities said Monday.

The main body of the Boeing 737 MAX has yet to be found.

It has been expanding aggressively in south-east Asia, a fast-growing region of more than 600 million people.
