This is what's left of the Lion Air jet that plunged into the Java Sea on Monday, killing all 189 people onboard. Video shared with Reuters shows debris from the wreckage as divers hunt for a second black box that could help determine what went fatally wrong. The first black box was recovered on Thursday.
But officials say the recorder was so badly damaged from the crash that they haven't yet been able to download all its information. Air traffic control lost contact with the plane shortly after takeoff. The extent of the impact was so significant that, so far, only small parts of the aircraft have been recovered.
The reason for the crash is still unknown, but a preliminary investigation will be made public after 30 days, according to one official. So far, it's known the pilot had requested to return to base shortly before the crash. The same plane had reported technical issues on its flight the day before.
The pilot on Sunday had reportedly made a pan-pan call minutes after takeoff. That's one step below a mayday. The call was cancelled and the plane safely landed that evening. The victims from Monday's crash are yet to be properly identified. 65 body bags containing remains have been given to forensic teams.
Relatives have been searching through personal items recovered from the sea, including rows of shoes, backpacks and wallets. So far, only one passenger has been identified from partial remains.
