Divers find crashed Lion Air's cockpit voice recorder

All 189 passengers and crew died when the Lion Air Boeing 737 plummeted into the sea after take-off from Jakarta

The cockpit voice recorder of a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java Sea off Indonesia in October killing everyone aboard has been found, providing a possible boost to investigations.

Indonesia's aviation safety record has improved since its airlines, including national carrier Garuda, were subject to years-long bans from U.S. and European airspace for safety violations, but the country still recorded more than three dozen fatal accidents over the past 15 years.

"We don't know what damage there is, it has obvious scratches on it", Nugroho said.

It is one of the two so-called black boxes.

Mr Satmiko told AFP that the voice recorder was found at around 09:00 local time (02:00 GMT).

Contact with flight JT610 was lost 13 minutes after it took off on October 29 from the capital, Jakarta, heading north to the tin-mining town of Pangkal Pinang.

Liverpool have been awarded four penalties in their last four league matches, with three coming for fouls on Salah. If people are starting to say Mo has gone down easily, it's not fair.

Indonesian officials have located the flight recorder from Lion Air flight JT610.

A flight data recorder was recovered shortly after the crash, but listening to the last conversations between the pilots and ground control should help investigators finish piecing together what went wrong in the short flight.

The family of one of the pilots, 41-year-old Harvino, has sued Boeing Co.in Chicago, alleging that aircraft sensors provided inaccurate information, causing the plane to nosedive, and that Boeing failed to provide proper training to pilots on the 737 MAX 8's features.

Separately, Colonel Johan Wahyudi told Metro TV the recorder had been retrieved and taken aboard the ship.

A preliminary crash report from Indonesia's transport safety agency suggested that pilots of Flight 610 struggled to control the plane's anti-stalling system just before the accident.

Relatives of those who had died questioned why the plane had been cleared to fly after suffering problems on its Bali to Jakarta flight on October 28 that included a rapid descent after take-off that terrified passengers.
