JAKARTA (INDONESIA) – Divers have spotted the casing of the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) from the crashed Sriwijaya Air plane. However they are yet to find it’s memory unit, a navy officer said on Friday.
“We’ve found the (CVR) body or casing, we’ve found the beacon and now we’re looking for the memory,” officer Abdul Rasyid told reporters aboard the navy ship Rigel, which was televised live.
Earlier this week, divers retrieved the other so-called black box, the flight data recorder (FDR), of the 26-year-old Boeing Co 737-500 jet.
Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) stated that they have successfully downloaded information from the FDR, which contained 330 parameters and “all are in good conditions”.
Flight SJ 182 crashed into the Java Sea minutes after take-off from Jakarta with 62 people on board last Saturday
