SINGAPORE, January 10. /TASS/. Rescuers have found no black box flight recorders in the tail part of the crashed AirAsia plane lifted on Saturday off the seabed to the surface, Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency said on Saturday.
The operation to transport the fragment of the crashed airliner has not been completed and is expected to end on Sunday.
The divers have examined the tail section where flight recorders are usually placed.
Along with this, the divers searched a 1.6-kilometre area of the bottom around the site where the tail section had been found as pings had been detected there, but without success.
AirAsia flight QZ8501 disappeared from radar screens on December 28 about 40 minutes after its departure from Indonesia's second largest city of Surabaya to Singapore and crashed in the area off Kalimantan (Borneo) Island.
The jet was carrying 155 passengers and seven crewmembers, nationals from six countries /155 Indonesians, three South Koreans, one Briton, one Malaysian, one Singaporean and a Frenchman/.
So far, a total of 48 bodies from the crashed plane have been retrieved. The search and rescue operation is underway.
AirAsia is the largest low-cost carrier in Asia, with over 850 destinations in Southeast Asia, Australia, Great Britain, France and Japan.
