Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

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.
