Crashed Indonesian Lion Air Flight’s Fuselage Found, Missing Black Box Heard

JAKARTA – Divers searching for wreckage belonging to Lion Air flight 610 have found the fuselage of the crashed airliner and say they have heard a signal from its missing cockpit voice recorder, the head of Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency said on Saturday.

Muhammad Syaugi, head of the agency which is also known as Basarnas, told reporters at the port of Jakarta that divers had detected a characteristic “ping” sound from the second black box.

“Although the sound is quite weak, it came from a spot not far from the ship ‘Victory,’” he said, referring to a rescue vessel deployed to the area.

The brand new Boeing 737’s other black box, or flight data recorder, had been found Thursday, but so far investigators have not been able to recover any information from it, officials said.

Syaugi spoke at the dockside where Indonesian navy officers could be seen lifting some heavy parts of the aircraft, such as its undercarriage.

“I haven’t seen it myself but I got information from some divers that they have seen the fuselage,” Syaugi added.

Flight JT-610 was en route to Pangkal Pinang and had taken off from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport when it the control tower lost contact with it on Monday.

The aircraft crashed into the sea, killing all of the 189 occupants aboard, Basarnas, said.
