Jakarta: A “black box” flight data recorder from Lion Air flight JT 610 has been found by divers off the coast of Indonesia.
The plane, carrying 189 people, crashed soon after taking off from Jakarta, the Indonesian capital, on Monday.
It plummeted into the Java Sea – no survivors have been found, nor has the body of the Boeing 737.
There is as yet no indication of what caused the crash, but the aircraft is believed to have experienced technical problems on its penultimate flight.
The plane was making a one-hour journey to the western city of Pangkal Pinang when it went down.
The pilot had asked air traffic control for permission to turn back to the airport, but then contact was lost.
