Divers see Lion Air jet fuselage, new ping heard from seafloor

Divers find ‘black box’ from crashed Indonesian Lion Air jet

Indonesian divers have found the main wreckage of Lion Air Flight 610 that crashed Monday killing all 189 aboard, and also say they can hear the signal from the aircraft's cockpit voice recorder [CVR].

Anto, who joined the team of the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) voluntarily, also worked for search and rescue operations in September's natural disaster and tsunami in Indonesia's Palu region.

"I'm sure the total will increase", Air Marshal Syaugi said. It is believed he died from decompression.

"He was found by the SAR team, fainted".

"We chose to extend it three days", national search and rescue agency Basarnas' chief Muhammad Syaugi said yesterday at a news conference.

More than 100 divers are now involved in the search, Syaugi said, adding that he received word the main body of the plane has been located.

Flight JT610 crashed into the sea early on Monday, 13 minutes after it took off from Jakarta.

The plane is also reported to have experienced difficulties during a previous flight on Sunday from Bali to Jakarta.

The flight data recorder, or black box, was recovered on Thursday and Mr Syaugi said a "low ping signal" was detected by a sonar locator that could be the black box voice recorder.

In this file photo, a wallet belonging to a victim of the Lion Air passenger jet that crashed is seen in the waters of Ujung Karawang, West Java, Indonesia.

Earlier it was revealed that Lion Air dispatched one of its engineers on the fatal flight.

A team from the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board including Boeing experts has joined the Indonesian investigation.

The search and rescue agency said the recovery effort would continue at least through Sunday. Asked about the accuracy of the report, National Transportation Safety Committee deputy head Haryo Satmiko said it had "similarities" with the information received "legally" by investigators. A remote-operated vehicle was sent to the black box location "but the currents on the seabed were very strong, the [vehicle] was carried away", Syaugi said.

Lion Air - which has had a number of incidents including a fatal 2004 crash - capitalised on an explosion in Indonesia's domestic air travel market. Lion Air was among the Indonesian airlines banned by the European Union (EU) from 2007 through 2016, according to the Aviation Safety Network database maintained by the Flight Safety Foundation.

In 2014, an AirAsia crash in the Java Sea during stormy weather killed 162 people.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's newest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and worldwide destinations.
