Black box from crashed Indonesian jet retrieved from debris on sea floor

Divers In Indonesia Find Crashed Airliner's 'Black Box'

It should be recalled, on 29 October off the coast of Indonesia crashed airliner, Boeing 737 MAX, which was flying JT610 in pangkal Pinang.

Flight JT 610 sped up as it suddenly lost altitude and then vanished from radar 12 minutes after take-off, with authorities saying witnesses saw the jet plunge into the water.

"In principle, all data we have obtained, including flight data and air navigation, and also from other sources - we find that there have indeed been problems" with the plane, said Haryo Satmiko, deputy chairman of the National Transport Safety Committee.

"The captain said the problem was resolved and he made a decision to continue the trip to Jakarta".

President Joko Widodo had also ordered a review of all regulations relating to flight safety, Sumadi said.

Divers searched for victims and high-tech equipment was deployed as reports emerged of problems on the jet's previous flight that had terrified passengers.

He said he wanted investigators to determine the cause of the crash quickly so "we can determine the next step".

"We have found bigger parts of the plane than we have seen in previous days", he added. According to the Guardian, citing data from FlightRadar24, a flight-tracking website, the jet displayed unusual variations in altitude and air speed in the first few minutes of flight before stabilizing and flying on to Jakarta.

"We have also intensified (on-site) checks on Lion Air, starting today", Budi said, referring to monitoring of the airline's airmen, operator and the company itself to ensure that they are conducting flights safely and in compliance with regulations.

But at a later news conference, another investigator, Ony Soeryo Wibowo, said they still haven't determined if it's the flight data or cockpit voice recorder.

She said passengers sat in the cabin without air conditioning for at least 30 minutes listening to an "unusual" engine roar, while some children vomited from the overbearing heat, until staff faced with rising anger let them disembark.

In August 2015, a commercial passenger aircraft operated by Indonesian carrier Trigana crashed in Papua due to bad weather, killing all 54 people on board. But he acknowledged the plane's technical problems and said they were checked in Jakarta after it landed about 11:00pm, and the plane was deemed safe to fly the next morning.

Navy divers on Thursday pulled from the muddy seabed the "crash-survivable memory unit" of one black box, raising hopes its stored data will show what went wrong on flight JT610, whose pilot had received permission to turn back before the crash.

Passengers on a previous flight on the two-month-old aircraft had reported problems including terrifying descents, unusual engine noises and a burning smell. The ban was completely lifted in June. Local airline traffic more than tripled between 2005 and 2017 to 97 million people, according to the CAPA Center for Aviation, and is dominated by flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air Group.
