Divers looking for black boxes from AirAsia Flight 8501 – CBS News

Posted: Thursday, January 08, 2015

PANGKALAN BUN, Indonesia — The tail section of the AirAsia passenger jet that crashed late last month is upside down and partially buried in the sea floor, and experts are trying to figure out how to remove the plane’s black boxes from it, an Indonesian official said.

Divers and an unmanned underwater vehicle on Wednesday spotted the tail of the plane that crashed into the Java Sea with 162 people on board. It is an important finding because the jet’s black boxes — which should help pinpoint the cause of the crash — are located in that part of the aircraft.
