Indonesia’s Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) today lifted the tail piece of AirAsia flight QZ 8501 from the Java Sea.

 The tail piece has been transported to Pangkalan Bun and will be handed over to Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) for further investigation.

 The sonar equipment being used by the SAR teams have also detected more objects which are believed to be the plane’s front section. They are also hopeful that pings detected near the location where the tail was found are from the plane’s black box flight recorders.

Sea divers, vessels and helicopters were today used to observe the focused searched area.

To date, 48 remains have been recovered, of which 29 have been identified by DVI POLRI with 19 remains still to be identified.
