Indonesia closing in on plane's black box

Indonesia closing in on plane's black box

Divers plucked the orange data recorder from the ocean and placed it in a plastic tub as search teams continued to scour the seabed for the fuselage of the Boeing-737 MAX 8, which crashed off Indonesia's northern coast on Monday and had only been in service a few months.

Ms Cintya was on the flight to Pangkal Pinang for work with two colleagues from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

The single-aisle Boeing plane is one of the world's newest and most advanced commercial passenger jets.

Indonesia's transport minister ordered an inspection of all 737-MAX aircraft on Tuesday.

Indonesia's Transport Ministry has ordered a review of all low-priced airlines in the country and suspended staff linked to the Lion Air flight that crashed on Monday killing the 189 people aboard.

Edward Sirait, the president of Lion Air, has said the company was aware of reports of problems on the flight on Sunday and that a technical issue was "resolved in accordance with the procedures released by the plane manufacturer".

One of the black boxes from the Lion Air flight that crashed off Indonesia has been found.

Authorities said Wednesday they believed they had pinpointed the resting place of the Lion Air jetliner, which vanished from radar screens after taking off on a flight to nearby Bangka-Belitung island.

The country's second-deadliest air disaster since 1997 has renewed concern about Indonesia's patchy aviation safety record.

REUTERS/Beawiharta Indonesian police officers look at belongings of passengers of Lion Air flight JT610 at Tanjung Priok port in Jakarta, Indonesia, October 31, 2018.

Officials from Boeing are meeting the Indonesian authorities on Wednesday as part of the investigation.

The FDR was brought to the surface by two Navy divers and has been sent to the National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) headquarters in Jakarta for further investigation.

Boeing officials were expected to meet with Lion Air on Wednesday, after Indonesia ordered an inspection of the U.S. plane maker's 737-MAX jets.

It took off at 6.20am local time and lost contact at 6.33am (11.33pm GMT).

Strong currents have hampered efforts to find the fuselage of the plane, with efforts complicated by the presence of energy pipelines in the area.

Video of passengers boarding the flight has been broadcast on Indonesian TV.

The chief of the police's medical unit, Arthur Tampi, said it has received dozens of body parts for identification and is awaiting results of DNA tests, expected to take four to eight days. Its aircraft have been involved in at least 15 safety incidents and it has been placed under tougher worldwide safety restrictions than other Indonesian airlines.
