Indonesia hunts sea bed for crashed Lion Air jet's second black box

The investigation into the first ever crash of a Boeing Co 737 MAX aircraft, introduced into commercial service previous year, will also be scrutinised by the global aviation industry.

The black boxes, which airlines are required to install, offer investigators their best chance of discovering why such a new jet crashed.

Indonesia's search and rescue agency said it was prioritising finding the main wreckage using sonar metal detectors, and all but ruled out finding any survivors from the high-impact crash in water some 30 to 40 metres deep.

But investigators will look at everything from catastrophic mechanical failure and pilot error to weather conditions or unusual cockpit activity that could point to a hijacking or pilot suicide, they said.

Searchers have found one black box and just one passenger has been identified from partial human remains recovered from the shallow waters.

The suspended technicians "issued the recommendations for that (final) flight", the ministry said in a press release. The flight then lost contact with air traffic control.

Despite the name, black boxes are in fact bright orange with reflective stripes, and all commercial planes are obliged to have them on board.

"There is a lot of little debris, plane wheels, and seats - all totally destroyed and in pieces", said Isswarto, commander of the Indonesian navy's search-and-rescue division.

The recovery was relatively quick compared with past incidents.

Financial help is available for individuals with annual incomes up to $48,560; for a family of four the income limit is $100,400. They will also have options for longer duration short term health insurance plans that were not available previous year .

The crash Monday of Boeing's popular 737 Max 8 has so far puzzled experts.

"We haven't downloaded the data because there are some broken parts in the black box", Haryo Satmiko, the deputy of the transport safety panel, said of the flight data recorder found on Thursday, adding that some of the damage was to a socket on the device. The report on the Air Asia flight crash was out almost a year later.

Indonesia's transportation safety committee (KNKT) will analyze its data in Jakarta, which could take up to two weeks.

Several passengers on the Sunday flight from Bali to Jakarta have recounted problems that included a long-delayed takeoff for an engine check and terrifying descents in the first 10 minutes in the air. All the 189 people on board may have been dead, the office said.

Lion Air Group Managing Director Daniel Putut said the airline had "many questions" for the Chicago-based company and they would discuss the delivery of remaining aircraft 737-MAX models, Indonesian news website tirto.id reported.

Indonesia's transport minister ordered an inspection of all 737-MAX aircraft on Tuesday, October 30, while representatives from Boeing are due to meet with the budget carrier, said Lion spokesman Ramaditya Handoko. It will also assess the possibility of raising the ticket prices for flights run by low-priced carriers.

Relatives of 24-year-old Jannatun Cintya Dewi, whose remains were identified Wednesday, carried her body in a coffin covered in green cloth along a road in an East Java district to the burial place, followed by dozens of people in a solemn procession.

The commander of the navy divers involved in the search was quoted by the Kompas.com news portal as saying divers had found many bodies.

"Some family members have accepted (the situation)". More than 50 body bags have been sent to a police hospital.
