Jakarta, Nov 1 (IENews) On the fourth day of an intensive search operations, Indonesian officials on Thursday brought one of the black boxes from Lion Air flight JT610 to shore in northern Jakarta, a key breakthrough in the mission to discover the reasons for the fatal crash that killed all 189 people on board.
The flight data recorder was brought at the Jakarta International Container Terminal by Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi and Soerjanto Tjahjono, the head of Indonesia’s transport safety committee.
The black box will help to create a clearer picture about the plane’s final moments and the reasons it fell from the sky. It is likely to take up to two weeks to download all of the data.
Meanwhile, the hunt continues for the second black box i.e. the cockpit voice recorder.
The ‘Lion Air’ flight with at least 189 people on board crashed in the morning of Oct 29 into the sea, minutes after taking off from Jakarta airport.
