Indonesia’s Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) recovered the Flight Data Recorder (FDR), or black box as it is commonly known, of AirAsia QZ 8501 on Monday.

 The FDR was found under the plane’s wing wreckage and has now been lifted from the seafloor.

The FDR will be transferred to Jakarta, and handed over to Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) for investigation.

 The Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) has not yet been recovered, and the search to recover that will continue today.

Sea divers from the SAR team were also deployed on Monday, to obtain visual confirmation of two large objects which are suspected to be parts of the aircraft, approximately 4km from the location where the tail piece was found.

To date, 48 bodies have been recovered.
