Cockpit voice recorder found from crashed Lion Air plane

BREAKING Lion Air cockpit voice recorder found

Nugroho said human remains had been found near where the CVR was discovered, about 50 meters from where the crashed jet's other black box, the flight data recorder (FDR), was found three days after the crash.

Ridwan Djamaluddin, a deputy maritime minister, told reporters that the agency investigating the crash that killed 189 people had informed the ministry about the discovery.

The Lion Air crash was the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since 1997, when 234 people died on a Garuda flight near Medan.

Investigators have already recovered the flight data recorder from the Boeing 737 Max, which provided information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane before it plunged into the sea on October 29.

The L3 Technologies Inc CVR was created to send acoustic pings for 90 days after a crash in water, according to an online brochure from the manufacturer.

Data from a preliminary investigation report, which didn't state any conclusions, showed that the plane's nose pointed down 26 times on its fatal 11-minute flight despite repeated efforts by the pilots to manually aim the nose higher.

Despite the name, black boxes are usually bright orange with reflective stripes, and all commercial planes are obliged to have them on board.

Black box data help explain almost 90 percent of all crashes, according to aviation experts.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and global destinations.

The Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee investigator, Nurcahyo Utomo, answering questions on the crash on 28/11/18.

The pilots appeared to struggle with an automated system created to keep the plane from stalling - a new feature of the Boeing 737 Max.

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

Black box data showed the plane also had an airspeed indicator issue on multiple earlier flights.
