Search-and-rescue divers working Wednesday in Indonesian waters heard regular "pings" in what authorities said they hope will turn out to be the main body of the Lion Air plane that plunged into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff Monday morning.
The head of the National Transportation Safety Committee, Soerjanto Tjahjono, says pings detected at sea in the search for a crashedLion Air plane are definitely from its flight recorder due to their regular pattern.
All passenger aircraft are required to have two so-called black boxes, which are in fact bright orange in color to make them easier to locate after an accident.
"We can not say how long it takes to process data in a black box, but of course we will try as soon as possible". "We will send a team there to confirm", the army chief said.
Boeing Co. experts were expected to arrive in Indonesia on Wednesday and Lion Air has said an "intense" internal investigation is underway in addition to the probe by safety regulators.
As NPR reported Tuesday, "Data from the flight tracking websiteFlightRadar24 shows the jet flew irregularly the day before the crash, with abnormal drops in altitude and speed just a few minutes after takeoff".
Meanwhile, the hunt continues for the second black box, the cockpit voice recorder.
"We found one of the black boxes", Soerjanto Tjahjono told AFP.
While there is no sign of survivors, rescuers have recovered some bodies and personal items, including baby shoes, the report said.
