Indonesian divers say they've found the black box from the doomed Lion Air jet that crashed into the sea this week. Officials hope the data retrieved will help provide answers as to why the nearly new plane went down, killing all 189 people on board. Ground staff lost contact with the flight just 13 minutes after the Boeing aircraft took off on Monday.
Indonesian transport officials say the plane had technical problems on its previous flight on Sunday, including unreliable readings of its airspeed. No distress signal was received before Monday's crash but the pilot had asked to return to base after takeoff. Investigators are trying to determine why. Only small pieces of the aircraft have been retrieved so far, along with personal items believed to have belonged to passengers.
An underwater drone has detected an object suspected to be part of the main body of the aircraft, where most of the victims are expected to be found.
