Lion Air crash: 'Black box' voice recorder found

The Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet plunged into the Java Sea just minutes after taking off from Jakarta killing all 189 people on board Lion Air crash: 'Black box' voice recorder found

The voice recorder was recovered about 165 feet from where the plane's flight data recorder was found three days after the crash. A press conference is expected later Monday.

The 2-month-old Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet plunged into the Java Sea just minutes after taking off from Jakarta on October 29, killing everyone on board.

The agency also found that the Lion Air jet should have been grounded over a recurrent technical problem before its fatal journey, and it criticised the budget carrier's poor safety culture.

They each weigh seven to 10 kg (15 to 22 pounds) and can survive as deep as 6,000m (almost 20,000 feet) underwater or an hour at 1,100 degrees Celsius (2,012 degrees Fahrenheit).

"Even though we don't yet know the contents of the CVR, this is some relief from our despair", he said.

The flight data recorder gathers information about the speed, altitude and direction of the plane with enough storage for 25 hours of data, while the cockpit voice recorder keeps track of pilots' conversations and other sounds in the cockpit.

Information retrieved from the jet's flight data recorder late a year ago indicated that the pilot was using his controls to bring the airline's nose up but that an automated anti-stall system was pushing it down.

A voice recorder and the remains of some of the 189 victims of a devastating air crash have been discovered by divers in Indonesia.

The transport committee's chairman, Soerjanto Tjahjono, said the device will be taken to the investigators' "black box" facility.

After investigators said the doomed aircraft had problems with its airspeed indicator and angle of attack (AoA) sensors, Boeing issued a special bulletin telling operators what to do when they face the same situation.

The crash was the world's first of a Boeing 737 MAX jet.

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

In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing all 162 people on board.
