Indonesian navy divers have recovered the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) from the crashed Indonesia AirAsia flight QZ8501, a day after the aircraft’s flight data recorder (FDR) was retrieved.
An official from the country’s National Transport Safety Committee (NTSC) tells Flightglobal that the CVR, like the FDR, will be handed over to Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas), before being transferred to the NTSC. The recorders will then be brought to Jakarta for investigations.
The official however, could not provide the coordinates where the CVR was found, or its physical condition.
To date, search teams have also recovered 48 bodies, the tail, as well as fragments of the wings and engines.
Flight QZ8501, an Airbus A320 aircraft, crashed on 28 December while flying from Surabaya to Singapore, claiming the lives of all 155 passengers and seven crew members on board.
