Voice recorder from plane that crashed into sea found
The cockpit voice recorder of a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java
Sea in October has been discovered, an Indonesian official said Monday, in a possible boost to the accident investigation.
Ridwan Djamaluddin, a deputy maritime minister, told reporters that the agency investigating the crash that killed 189 people had informed officials about the discovery.
The 2-month-old Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed just minutes after taking off from Jakarta on Oct. 29, killing everyone on board. The cockpit data recorder was recovered within days and showed that the jet’s airspeed indicator had malfunctioned on its last four flights.
