JAKARTA: A team of Indonesian navy divers retrieved on Monday the flight data recorder from an AirAsia airliner that crashed two weeks ago, killing all 162 people on board, a government official said.
â€œThis morning I had an official report from the national transportation safety committee. At 7:11 we had succeeded in lifting the part of the black box known as the flight data recorder,â€ Fransiskus Bambang Soelistyo, head of the search and rescue agency, told a news conference.
â€œWe are still trying to find the cockpit voice recorder.â€
Flight QZ8501 vanished from radar screens over the northern Java Sea on Dec. 28, less than half-way into a two-hour flight from Indonesiaâ€™s second-biggest city of Surabaya to Singapore. –Reuters
