SINGAPORE, January 12. /TASS/. Rescuers have detected the location of a second flight recorder from an AirAsia jet which crashed in the Java Sea, Indonesian news portal Detik has reported.
“The second part of the flight recorder is located near the bottom of the jet,” a representative of the rescue operation said.
Divers earlier succeeded to lift a flight data recorder. Its decoding may take up to two weeks, preliminary data will be obtained already in two days, if the flight data recorder hadn't not been damaged severely. The fight data will be most likely examined in Jakarta, detectives said.
On December 28, 2014, the AirAsia jet A320-200 on QZ8501 flight from Surabaya, Indonesia’s second-largest city, to Singapore, disappeared from the radars 40 minutes after departure, flying in the area of Kalimantan (Borneo) Island in the Java Sea. The jet was carrying 155 passengers and seven crewmembers.
