Indonesia recovers data from doomed Lion Air flight

Indonesia recovers data from doomed Lion Air flight

"We chose to extend it three days", beginning on Monday, search and rescue agency (Basarnas) chief Muhammad Syaugi told a news conference.

Muhammad Syaugi, Indonesia's search and rescue chief, said investigators "made major breakthroughs" in their probe into why the near-brand new jet crashed in good weather earlier this week.

"We have successfully retrieved information from the flight data recorder", said Nurcahyo Utomo, the head of an investigation being led by Indonesia's transport safety committee.

On Oct. 29, Lion Air flight JT 610 was traveling from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang when it crashed into the Java Sea. All 189 people, including 181 passengers, two pilots and six crew members, on board the ill-fated aircraft are feared to have died.

The brand new Boeing 737 Max 8, was flying erratically on Monday morning as well, but Lion Air chose to keep it in the skies. However, it was found to be broken open and affected by sea water, and needs special treatment to make sure the data is accessible.

The national search and rescue agency Basarnas has so far handed over 105 body bags containing human body parts retrieved from the search area.

The Lion Air jet crashed just minutes after takeoff from Jakarta on October 29, killing all 189 people on board in the country's worst airline disaster since 1997.

Flight tracking websites show the plane had erratic speed and altitude during its fatal 13-minute flight and a previous flight the day before from Bali to Jakarta.

Divers have been searching for a second black box from the jet, as investigators try to get data from a partly damaged recorder recovered from sunken wreckage on Thursday.

It's understood Virgin Australia has 30 Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes on order, with the first of them due to arrive in November next year.

The shattering of the black box is unusual according to experts from US National Transportation Safety Board, since the devices are "built to withstand high-impact crashes".

The accident resurrected concerns about Indonesia's poor air safety record which until recently saw its carriers facing years-long bans from entering European Union and U.S. airspace.

"The temporary report is related to the ramp check conducted on one Garuda plane and five Lion Air planes".

While Lion Air said the condition of the aircraft before take-off had nothing to do with the fatal crash, airline safety analysts told AirlineRatings.com the two are "definitely linked".
