Indonesia’s Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) lifted the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) of QZ8501 from the sea on Tuesday.

The CVR was found at a distance of approximately 20 meter from the location where the flight data recorder was found on Monday.

Both parts of the aircraft’s black box (flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder) have now been evacuated and flown to Jakarta for further investigation by Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT).

The main SAR operation is still on-going and its priority is to search and recover the passengers despite the weather and underwater current challenges.

A total of 48 remains have so far been recovered.
