Lion Air jet crash: Cockpit voice recorder found

Lion Air jet crash: Cockpit voice recorder found

Just as hopes to find the second black box of the crashed Boeing 737 MAX began to fade, a more than two-month-long struggle, including Lion Air's own failed search, has come to an end.

Ridwan Djamaluddin, a deputy maritime minister, told reporters that the agency investigating the crash that killed 189 people had informed the ministry about the discovery.

Navy divers found the device beneath 8 meters (26 feet) of seabed mud, Indonesian officials said Monday.

The missing Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR), a part of the Lion Air PK-LQP airplane's black box, has been found.

Lion Air's JT610 nose-dived into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff October 29, killing all 189 on board to become the country's worst air disaster in two decades.

Almost 30 relatives of the crash victims have filed lawsuits against Boeing, alleging faults with the new model 737 MAX led to the deaths.

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

Indonesia's Transport Committee Chairman Soerjanto Tjahjono said it will take the rest of the week to dry and clean the recorder and download the data.

The deal has the unanimous support of the directors of both companies but requires regulatory approvals in several countries. Desjardins analyst Josh Wolfson said the deal looks like an answer to some of Goldcorp's problems.

The cockpit voice recorder from Lion Air Flight 610 is displayed by Indonesian navy personnel after the device's recovery on Monday.

An analysis of the flight data recorder showed the plane's anti-stall system pushed the plane's nose down while pilots wrestled with the flight stick more than a dozen times.

In December, up to eight United States law firms jostled to represent the relatives of victims in separate lawsuits against Boeing, alleging the aircraft maker is to blame for defects in the plane that caused the crash.

The Lion Air accident has also prompted Australia's aviation safety regulator to undertake additional checks on Lion Air subsidiaries that now fly to Australia.

The smashed fuselage of a crashed Indonesian Lion Air jetliner may have been found, a top military commander said on October 31, as Jakarta ordered the removal of the budget carrier's technical director and staff who cleared the doomed flight for takeoff.

According to reports, the pilots appeared to struggle with an automated system created to keep the plane from stalling.

Since the crash, Lion Air has faced scrutiny over its maintenance and training standards, and relatives of victims have filed at least three lawsuits against Boeing.
