Indonesian Search and Rescue Agency chief Henry Bambang Soelistyo said the fuselage, which was spotted Wednesday by a Singaporean navy ship, would be lifted bambang supriyadi forex news the seabed after the search for bodies was no longer considered effective. The 100-foot-long section of the plane body with a wing attached was sighted on the bottom of the Java Sea.
Rescuers believe that most of the bodies of the 162 people on board are inside. So far, only 50 bodies have been recovered from the Dec. 28 crash less than halfway into a two-hour flight from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Most of the victims are Indonesian.
At least 15 divers descended to the seabed at a depth of 92 feet to examine wreckage, calculate its weight and search for the bodies. When corpses are found, the divers will try to put them in individual body bags, which rescuers on ships will then hoist to the surface, said Suryadi Bambang Supriyadi, the operation director at the National Search and Rescue Agency. He said it appeared that some parts of the fuselage have been covered with silt. The plane’s “black boxes”— the flight data and cockpit flight recorders — were retrieved on Monday and Tuesday. They will be key to learning what caused the plane to crash. Bad weather is a suspected factor.
Nine aircraft and 10 ships including one from China were involving the search operation Thursday. Singapore have left the mission area, Soelityo said. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. All market data delayed 20 minutes. Suryadi Bambang Supriyadi, the operation coordinator at Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency, announced that the voice recorder, one of the two so-called “black boxes,” was located hours after the flight data recorder was brought to the surface.
He said the voice recorder was stuck under heavy wreckage and divers were working to free it at a depth of 105 feet. Searchers had begun focusing on the site Sunday after three Indonesian ships picked up intense pings from the area, but they were unable to see it due to strong currents and poor visibility. Search efforts have been consistently hampered by big waves and powerful currents created by the region’s rainy season. Silt and sand, along with river runoff, have created blinding conditions for divers. The flight data recorder, which was found under part of the downed plane’s wing at a depth of 100 feet, will be taken to Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, for analysis. It could take up to two weeks to download its information, said Nurcahyo Utomo, an investigator at the National Committee for Safety Transportation.
